Welcome to Nutrition Services at the Arthur Ashe Student Health and Wellness Center. We are dedicated to helping you manage your medical concern or disease condition through personalized Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT).

What is Medical Nutrition 
Therapy (MNT)?

Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is an evidence-based approach to treating medical conditions and their associated symptoms through the use of an individually tailored nutrition plan. Our registered dietitian can work with you to tailor a nutrition plan for the management and prevention of various health conditions such as:

  • diabetes or prediabetes
  • high cholesterol
  • high blood pressure
  • eating disorders / disordered eating
  • gastrointestinal issues

MNT involves a comprehensive assessment of your nutritional status, lifestyle, and medical history to develop a customized nutrition plan that can help treat your medical concerns.

Scheduling an Appointment

Scheduling an appointment for Medical Nutrition Therapy requires a referral from your Ashe Center Primary Care Provider (PCP). To get started, follow these simple steps:

  • Schedule an Appointment. If you have been seen at The Ashe Center and your Primary Care Provider (PCP) generated a referral for nutrition counseling, please call The Ashe Center at 310-825-4073, option 1 to schedule a nutrition appointment.

If you have never been seen by your Ashe Center PCP and/or have not received a referral for nutrition counseling, please schedule an appointment to see your PCP to establish care and have your medical condition evaluated.

  • Complete the pre-visit questionnaire. Before your appointment, please be sure to fill out the questionnaire online prior to appointment time. These forms help us tailor your consultation to your needs and allows you more time to discuss your needs with the dietitian.

  • Attend Your Consultation. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to appointment time to check in at the kiosk or online if you are doing a Zoom appointment.
