The Nutrition Education Program at McKinley Health Center provides in-house and outreach services for students on the Urbana campus. Many of the nutrition services provided on campus are joint programs with the Nutrition Program at SportWell. The goal of the nutrition program is to provide education on a variety of nutrition topics, to encourage healthy eating behaviors and to facilitate understanding the benefits of healthy eating.
Illinois students meet one-on-one with a registered dietitian who is a professional staff member at McKinley or SportWell. Nutrition concerns of any kind may be addressed in an hour session. Some topics may include: general healthy eating, vegetarian eating, preventing heart disease, diabetes, sports nutrition, disordered eating behavior, herbs and supplements.
Living Lean Group Classes
Living LEAN is a series of interactive group sessions where participants can learn about nutrition and fitness through hands-on activities, check their weight weekly, and ask nutrition and fitness questions in a relaxed, non-threatening atmosphere. (no appointment required, UI students only)

Get your general nutrition questions answered in these brief consultations. No appointment is required, but space is limited to the first six participants on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk-in sessions are not held during summer sessions. Check the calendar of events for dates and locations.
