Nutrition appointments are currently being conducted remotely by phone or telehealth.

To schedule, call the Office of Health Promotion at 434-924-1509 (online scheduling is not currently available). For students who have not previously met with one of our RDs, at this time, we are able to offer a 60-minute initial appointment consisting of consultation, limited assessment, and referral assistance. Follow-up appointments of 30 minutes are available for check-in and ongoing care. The RD will work with you individually to establish a plan of care.

  • If you have an existing appointment scheduled with one of our Registered Dietitians (RD), the RD will contact you ahead of time via phone or Healthy Hoos about conducting your appointment by phone or telehealth.
    • By Phone: The RD will call you at the number listed on your medical chart. Please ensure that the phone number listed in your Healthy Hoos portal is accurate and set to allow calls from an “unknown number."
    • Via Telehealth: The RD will email an invitation for your appointment to your UVA email address. Please follow these instructions for accessing and using Webex, our telehealth platform.
  • If you need to change your appointment, please contact your RD directly or call Melanie Tyree, Administrative Assistant in the Office of Health Promotion, at 434-924-1509.
  • Please make sure you have your phone or laptop with you and are in a location where you can easily speak privately to the clinician at the scheduled time. Please also check your email regularly for updates.

Nutrition services in the Office of Health Promotion are grounded in a weight-neutral, health-forward approach. Our nutrition philosophy is centered on enjoyment, connection, social justice, and food as medicine.
