Eating disorder evaluation
Concerned about your eating? Schedule an evaluation with our expert team; call (413) 577-5101.
Your session begins with a 45-minute meeting with a nutritionist, who'll discuss your diet history with you. Then you’ll meet with a physician for a 30-minute medical evaluation. Finally, you and the team will meet together to develop a plan. Before your appointment, you’ll need blood tests. If you’ve had blood work within the past two weeks, ask your provider to fax the results to us, at (413) 577-5440. Otherwise we’ll order tests at the UHS lab before your appointment.
Food and feelings often go hand-in-hand. Talk about what’s on your mind with a counselor from the Center for Counseling and Psychological Services. Call (413) 545-2337 for an appointment.
UHS and the athletics department work together to provide nutritional consultations at Boyden Gymnasium. Student athletes can receive dietary evaluation, discuss nutritional issues and learn about eating for peak results. Call (413) 577-5101 for an appointment.
