Nutrition Services is a self-operated food and nutrition department. We offer personal nutrition counseling and group classes to help with diabetes, weight loss, weight management, obesity, kidney disease, kidney stones and other health conditions. Retail dining options are available at many locations across the medical center campus and in ambulatory settings. Healthy inpatient meals are provided to nourish patients during their stay at any OSU Wexner Medical Center hospital.

Community education opportunities, including our Ross Heart Community Garden, JamesCare for Life classes/events and our Mobile Education Kitchen provide a way to closer engage in our community.
