HealthFirst and Nutrition
In addition to regular coursework in nutrition, the College of Medicine offers information such as recipes and events in meal planning and preparation along with consultations with a nutritionist. Currently, we offer a bi-annual "wellness café" which provides students with healthy food and beverage options free-of-charge during the particularly-stressful final exam weeks of the semester. As a part of the HealthFirst initiative, having a healthy and balanced diet during medicine is one of our goals to a healthy lifestyle!
Useful Nutrition Apps
We all know we need to drink more water, but actually doing it can sometimes feel like a chore. This app can help. It tracks the exact amount of water you drink each day. To make it easier, you can take a photo of your favorite drinking receptacles (bottles, cups, etc.) and Waterlogged will track your intake exactly. And it tracks more than just water — energy drinks, coffee, tea, and soda can all be measured, too. For a small initial fee, you can also get reminders to drink more throughout the day so you don’t forget.
