Clinical/Evaluative Programs

Nutrition

The Mailman Center Nutrition Division provides Medical nutrition therapy for children and adolescents. Our areas of expertise include:

  • Children who are overweight
  • Children/adolescents with eating disorders
  • GI problems including celiac disease and food allergies
  • Nutrition problems related to endocrinology, cardiology and dermatology

Our expert nutritionists assess the adequacy of nutritional intake and often perform nutritional interventions to reduce the risk of chronic disease, obesity and/or eating disorders. The Nutrition Division is also a provider of Healthy Start Nutrition Services, a program that provides intensive nutrition counseling to high risk pregnant women.

As an academic division, our experts are also involved in training graduate nutrition students as well as collaborating on nutrition training for medical students. Our expert nutritionist, Shea Rarback, writes a bi-weekly column in the Miami Herald and columns in South Florida Parenting Magazine and for Teach More/Love More.
