Cornell Health's nutritionists provide nutrition counseling for students seeking information and guidance about their dietary needs and practices, and students who need (or want) to adhere to a special diet.
Registered Dietitian Nutritionists can support you in your efforts to:
- Evaluate and understand your dietary and nutritional needs
- Develop nutritional strategies to your support health, fitness, or athletic goals
- Better understand the connection between fueling, metabolism, and physical and mental health
- Navigate barriers to healthy eating such as managing time, stress and anxiety, complicated food environments (dining halls, learning to cook for oneself), and competitive and recreational sport training and competition
- Eat well while following a special diet (related to a medical condition, or to a personal choice such as vegetarianism, etc.)
- Cultivate a positive body image

Our nutrition workshops are FREE and open to all undergraduate, graduate, and professional students.

Our “Collaborative Health and Eating Program” (CHEP)* is a coordinated, multidisciplinary team of Cornell Health providers made up of medical, nursing, nutrition, psychiatry, and counseling providers who work together to support students struggling with disordered eating and related concerns.
If you're struggling with disordered eating or an eating disorder – or if your feelings and behaviors related to body image and eating begin to impede your ability to participate in and enjoy life – it’s important to seek help.
