Flu Shot Clinic for On-Campus Faculty and Employees
Faculty and employees who are authorized to be on-campus this fall are eligible and encouraged to receive an influenza vaccination. Working remotely? Contact your primary care physician or local in-network pharmacy for a flu shot.
Update: The program has reached capacity and registration is closed.
Work one-on-one with NYU Steinhardt graduate students pursuing a career in the field of nutrition over three personalized counseling sessions to discuss improving your health. Participants will work with a faculty-supervised student to identify realistic goals and develop strategies to achieve them. To participate, you must have a specific nutritional goal on which to focus; the focus may be broad or specific, such as losing weight, reducing sodium intake, or improving the balance and quality of your meal plan.
Only individuals who are ready and excited to make healthy lifestyle changes will be invited to participate and must complete all counseling "homework" throughout the experience. To be considered, complete the LVS 100 survey (must be logged into NYU Home). Due to limited capacity based on the graduate student class size, completion of the form does not imply participation. Should you be chosen to participate, you will be contacted by the faculty member by October 1, 2020 to learn next steps.
