About the College
The Nutrition Center integrates nutrition education, training, services and research. As a result, UA students gain market-driven practice skills for the workplace — preparing them to meet emerging health care needs and changing demands of the profession.
We provide nutrition assessment and counseling, medical nutrition therapy, computerized menu and food intake analysis, food systems management services, and individual and group nutrition education services. Learn more.
We offer virtual consultations.
We also have a breastfeeding room, including a refrigerator for breastmilk storage, available for students, faculty and staff in the Nutrition Center.
