Disclaimer: Nutrition coaches are supervised by a Registered Dietitian but they have a specific scope of practice as not yet registered or licensed themselves. Some pre-existing or recently diagnosed medical conditions, allergies or intolerances may be more appropriately supported by a Registered Dietitian or other health care practitioner. If this is the case, the program supervisor will provide the interested student or faculty/staff member with a list of local qualified providers that can help.
