Sometimes with the stresses of graduate school, students often do not take care of their nutritional needs. Whether it is a perceived lack of time, or simple convenience, the role of nutritional wellbeing is often overlooked. Nutrition impacts your ability to think clearly and logically, perform at peak capacity while under stress, bounce back from fatigue and injury, and fight off illness. It’s a critical part of your health and just as important as your studies.
Sonoran University offers all students access to free evidence-based, personalized nutrition care through our Virtual Center for Personalized Nutrition. All consultations and follow-up visits are provided at no cost, and all appointments are virtual so there is no need to be in the Tempe area to use this service. Please use the following link to schedule your appointment: https://www.sonoran.edu/virtual-center-for-personalized-nutrition/
Please note this service is also available at no cost to your friends, family, and the public across most states, nationwide. Our goal is to eliminate the greatest barrier to accessing high quality, evidence based, personalized nutrition care – cost. So, there is absolutely no cost for care, for anyone. The only time a cost may be associated with a visit is if a client opts to purchase a dietary supplement or other item recommended by the provider as part of their care plan, but this is not required – it is an option. So, for clients who do not wish to use supplements or cannot afford – their provider can focus recommendations on foods & lifestyle only.
