Funding towards increasing hours for our Wellness Dietitian
The impact of nutrition and healthy eating on a college campus is threefold, affecting academic, emotional and physical performance. Healthy Ospreys Eat Well campaign focuses on creating a healthy university environment that promotes healthy eating habits and provides a variety of choices for a wholesome diet. This campaign will not be successful without our on campus Registered Dietitian.
The Campus Dietitian is a food and nutrition expert, Yemila Lowery, at the University of North Florida is for nutrition counseling for all UNF students. Whether they’re are interested in a one-time meeting or multiple sessions, an individualized plan can be developed.
The campus dietitian is a resource to help students reach their healthiest potential with good nutrition, from nutrition basics, food allergies or intolerances, weight loss, eating disorders and nutrition for athletes.
