Nutrition Kitchen

At the University Health Center, we love to talk about health and we love to eat. In the Nutrition Teaching Kitchen, we offer healthy cooking classes for UGA students that are fun, educational, and interesting. Whitni McConnell, MS, RDN, LD, and student of most things edible, will teach you the right balance between flavor and nutrition on a tight budget. You will get the opportunity to practice healthy cooking techniques while enjoying a delicious meal.
