Nutrition Counseling & Education

If your doctor orders nutrition counseling and/or education for a medical condition you have, UL employees can receive nutrition counseling and education skills from a Registered Dietitian- Nutritionist (RDN) through some of UL’s health insurance plans!  If you access nutrition education and counseling services from an ULP Primary Care office that employees RDN’s, you are exempt from a co-pay! Email Nancy Kuppersmith,RDN, nckupp01@louisville.edu to find out how to schedule an appt.
