Nutrition counseling with registered dietitians is available to all UD students and covered by the UD Wellbeing Fee. Sessions are by appointment only and may require a medical referral by a Student Health Services provider.
We encourage you to schedule an appointment if you think you have symptoms that suggest an eating disorder, or you are recovering from an eating disorder.
Services include nutrition counseling and education for the following concerns:
- Eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder) as well as disorders of preoccupation with food, weight and body image
- Gastrointestinal disorders
- Healthy eating and meal planning for general wellness and disease prevention
- Sports nutrition or eating for exercise
- Vegetarian diets
- Weight management
Students with food allergies, food intolerances or other dietary restrictions should contact the Office of Disability Support Services at 302-831-4643 or firstname.lastname@example.org to coordinate campus resources specific to their dietary needs.
Questions specific to on-campus dining halls and available accommodations should be directed to Debbi Miller, Registered Dietician, Dining Services at 302-831-1008 or email@example.com.
We recognize the need for education and support around eating disorders and preoccupation with food, weight, and body image. Eating disorders are complicated medical and psychological conditions that affect a wide range of individuals, including people of all genders, ages, races, religions, ethnicities, sexual orientations, body shapes and weights.
Research has shown that a multidisciplinary approach to treatment is most effective for long-term success for an eating disorder. Student Health Services (SHS) and the Center for Counseling and Student Development (CCSD) work closely together to support students with disordered eating. Where appropriate, we offer coordinated care with medical doctors, dietitians and psychological counselors. An appropriate treatment plan will be established based on level of care required and services available on-campus and/or off-campus, to promote recovery and reduce the risk of relapse.
You can schedule an appointment through SHS at 302-831-2226 or through CCSD at 302-831-2141, whichever is more comfortable. We can then coordinate our integrated services with your partnership.
