Nutrition Seminars

Our monthly Nutrition Seminars take you on a deep dive into a relevant nutrition topic – each month focusing on a different topic with the goal of boosting your nutrition knowledge, bringing clarity to common nutrition questions, and connecting you with resources across campus. Topics vary each semester and may include topics such as eating on a budget, nutrition myth-busting, mindful eating, and body positivity or eating disorder prevention. Seminars are free of cost and open to any UC Berkeley student. Refreshments will be provided.

November: Nutrition Myth Busting

This seminar will explore the science behind the latest fad diets, discuss how to spot a fad diet and provide an alternative approach to dieting, answer common nutrition questions, and review how to find credible nutrition information.

December: Body Positivity & Eating Disorder Prevention

This seminar will explore how to resist cultural pressures to conform to ideal standards of beauty.

Nutrition Education Sessions Counseling for Students

Do you have general nutrition questions or want guidance on healthy eating? Sign up for a FREE 15-20 minute individual education nutrition counseling session with a registered dietitian. We’ll focus on eating for optimal health, performance, and disease prevention.

Nutrition Education Counseling Sessions are available on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3–5:30 p.m and some Tuesday mornings. See below to view appointment availability and schedule an appointment. When you arrive for your appointment, please bring your student ID card. The dietitian will meet you in front of the Pro Shop seating area.
