Health & Wellness Promotion
Have a question about food or nutrition? Trying to eat healthier?
Confused by a nutrition story you saw in the news?
IUPUI students, staff and faculty now have the opportunity to have diet and nutrition questions answered by students from the Department of Nutrition & Dietetics Internship program, in the School of Health and Rehabilitation Sciences. Faculty members from the program oversee student responses to each question submitted to the Dietitian's Dish.
The purpose of the Dietitian's Dish initiative is to help you to make healthier and more informed choices both on and off campus. Many individuals follow specific diets due to chronic diseases or illnesses, allergies or intolerance, dislikes and, cultural preferences and often lack the support needed to follow these diets especially students who are living away from home. The Dietitian’s Dish initiative enables you to ask a Registered Dietitian/dietetic interns nutrition-related questions and receive timely responses.
How Does the program work?
We will not be taking questions over the summer, due to the new Dietetic students not enrolling until August of Fall 2017.
Will We Answer Each Question?
Within 2-3 business days you will receive a direct e-mail with the answer to your question. Answers will also be posted on the website and organized by topic, though your personal information will never be associated with an answer anywhere on the website. The Dietitian's Dish is not designed to provide one-on-one counseling, or medical advice. Please make an appointment with a registered dietitian or your physician for personal advice or counseling.
*Please let us know in your question submission if you wish for your question not to be posted.*
