About Nutrition Services

Your relationship with food and your body has significant implications on your academic and job performance, physical health, and even your emotional well-being and social life. Working with a dietitian can give you the edge you need to reach your full potential. Students, faculty, and staff with nutrition-related health concerns can schedule an individual consultation with a registered dietitian at UHS. Our dietitian works closely with the UHS medical and counseling staff to ensure consistency and quality of care.

Meet the RD

Jennifer Barnoud, MS, RDN, LD Jennifer Barnoud, MS, RDN, LD is a master’s level registered and licensed dietitian born, raised, and educated in Tennessee. She specializes in the prevention or management of nutrition related diseases, the treatment of eating disorders, and individualized strategies for improvement of overall wellness. Through ongoing nutrition counseling, Jennifer provides you with a nonjudgmental space to help make sense of the abundant nutritional science and to collaboratively develop a personalized eating plan with your health goals in mind. Jennifer uses intuitive eating and mindfulness based strategies to bring about true lifelong health that encompasses mind, body, and spirit. Jennifer is most concerned about your health and well-being and therefore maintains a non-diet, weight neutral treatment approach.
