Event Description

Work with a Drexel University Registered Dietitian (RD) to meet your nutritional goals. Our expert dietitians will serve as your advocate for living a more energized and healthy life. You will learn research-based approaches will provide you with the necessary tools for sustainable diet and lifestyle changes that best support your health and well-being. Learn to improve your eating habits, plan meals, select snacks, for overall health, to enhance athletic performance, or manage diseases through therapeutic diets for better health and healing. Six sessions with an RD are recommended because lifestyle changes take time to incorporate.

Drexel employees may be entitled to six 1-hour nutrition counseling sessions per year at no cost through their Independence Blue Cross insurance plan.
