Benefit-eligible employees are those employees who meet the requirements to receive medical coverage through Drexel University.
When will these sessions be held?
Weekday mornings, afternoons and evenings are available in-person or by phone.
What can I expect at my first meeting with the RD?
The first meeting with the RD will begin with a complete nutrition and medical history including an assessment of body composition. A realistic plan will be created based on individualized goals and lifestyles.
Is nutrition counseling only for those who want to lose weight?
Not at all. Registered dietitians can help with any dietary concerns including management of chronic diseases, guidance navigating food allergies, sensitivities and intolerances, and strategies to improve athletic performance.

Sessions will be conducted at one of the three available locations: The Drexel University Recreation Center (3301 Market Street), or at Parkway Health and Wellness (1602 Cherry Street). Or by phone with our new tele-session option available Wednesdays from 9am-1pm. All in-person sessions are by appointment. Call 215-553-7012 to schedule.
