Be Well Fed at Carolina

Well Fed and Happy!

Here at CDS, it is our belief that students’ academic success is closely linked to good nutrition and to living a healthy lifestyle.

That’s why all meal plan holders have access to our on-site Registered Dietitian (RD). RDs are food and nutrition experts, translating the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living. They are able to separate facts from fads and translate nutritional science into information you can use. A dietitian can help put you on the path to building a healthy relationship with food, balanced eating, and risk reduction for chronic disease.

College is the best time for learning how to build healthy habits to carry with you for the rest of your life. Our RD, Lee July, is available to help you learn about these habits and how to separate facts from fads.

Meet the RD   |  Lee July MS, RD, LDN

After graduating from the University of Michigan with a bachelor’s in business administration, Lee worked in the IT field for 6 years before she embarked on a career change to become a registered dietitian. She received her master’s degree from Eastern Michigan University where she also completed her Coordinated Program in Dietetics.

She now works closely with the culinary team at UNC Chapel Hill to develop a variety of balanced menus to satisfy several special diets. Students with special dietary needs, including food allergies, may schedule individual consultations with Lee at any time. Throughout the semester, you may find Lee at nutrition tabling events or health & wellness promotions on campus.
