Nutrition

We understand that diet is an important indicator of potential chronic health issues and plays an immediate role in your success as a USC employee. We also understand the role that environment, attitudes, beliefs and behaviors play in the successful attainment of a healthy diet. We approach dietary changes holistically, incorporating physical, psychological and emotional approaches to developing a healthier body, a healthier relationship with food and a positive self-image.

Knowledge is power when it comes to your health. The Campus Wellness team is here to assist you in becoming a smart health consumer so that you can create and maintain a healthier you.
