Nutrition Peer Visits
A Nutrition Peer Visit is a one-on-one dietary discussion led by our well-trained Peer Health Educators. Students complete a 24-hour food recall and receive tailored nutrition education on topics such as meal planning, eating on a budget, and much more.
Nutrition Counseling is an opportunity for our students to meet with our Registered Dietitian Nutritionist who provides nutrition therapy for a variety of nutrition-related health concerns including diabetes, heart disease, eating disorders, and other medical diagnoses. Our RDN also provides assistance for students with food insecurity and how to access food and nutrition resources on campus.
WORKSHOP: Cooking Demos
Cooking Demonstrations: For in-person groups of 15 or less. Not sure what to cook? Don’t have time? Have limited cooking skills? Learn how to prepare quick and tasty, budget-friendly recipes. Participants get to sample each recipe and receive copies of the recipes to take home to practice on their own.
By the end of the presentation, students will be able to:
- Follow and prepare at least one recipe
- Know how to safely chop fruits and/or vegetables
- Gain knowledge on how to prepare meals that meet their nutritional needs
- Increase confidence that they can eat five servings of fruits and vegetables each day
Requested are reviewed with availability of presenters. For questions about cooking demonstrations, please contact Jennifer Campbell.
WORKSHOP: The Body Project 4-Week Program
The Body Project 4-Week Program is an interactive discussion group for people who identify as female; focused on helping them feel better about their bodies. Participants learn to embrace size diversity and reduce their own body dissatisfaction by decreasing "fat talk" in their daily life, engaging in Body Activism, and embracing all of the wonderful non-appearance related aspects of themselves and others. This group is led by Peer Body Project trained Sacramento State students. *Female-identified students only. Participants will receive a $5 Amazon gift card.
Students can sign up from the Patient Portal in the Groups/Workshops tab, or if you have any questions please contact Campus Dietitian Jennifer Campbell, at Jennifer.firstname.lastname@example.org
Wellness in the Classroom
Positive well-being is an important predictor of learning and student success. Research indicates a strong connection between student wellbeing, deep learning, and impactful teaching practices. By making small adjustments to teaching practices and course structure, faculty can have an enormous impact on students’ wellness and ability to learn, even inside the classroom. The Classroom Wellness Online Toolkit is a menu of strategies and resources, to help faculty incorporate elements of wellbeing into their pedagogy. Wellness in the Classroom offers additional resources, technical assistance, and a Faculty Learning Community through the Center for Teaching and Learning.
