Most services are now available via telehealth, including free nutrition counseling with registered dietitian nutritionists who are also MSU Denver Nutrition Department professors. The RDNs can provide nutrition recommendations and answer questions related to chronic health conditions, weight management, optimizing athletic performance or developing a personalized healthy eating routine. Based on health needs and goals, the RDN will suggest a personalized action plan, including dietary information and recommendations for follow-up visits.

The innovative partnership between the Health Center at Auraria and the Nutrition Department supports MSU Denver constituents and offers nutrition students an opportunity to complete the practice hours necessary for graduation. The students help gather information and data and, with the patient’s consent, observe the appointments. 

Roadrunners who are interested in nutrition counseling, visit the Health Center at Auraria website for more information or call the Health Center at Auraria at 303-615-9999 to schedule an appointment. Before the first visit, Roadrunners must complete a Nutritional Counseling Intake Form.
