Mission Statement

At Duke we believe that a strong, well-nourished body and healthy mind are fundamental to optimal sports performance, recovery, academic success, and long term well-being. We also recognize that good nutrition is only one part of the “holistic” puzzle, which is why we have an interprofessional approach to supporting our students; working closely with our sports psychologist, athletic trainers, physical therapists, strength and conditioning coaches, and our physicians and other health care providers. We believe that good nutrition and an optimal diet play key roles in performance, wellness, and longevity. Through active learning and skill based instruction, we ensure that our student-athletes are given opportunities to practice what they learn and have easy access to knowledgeable professionals that can support them in their efforts.

Sports nutrition services are available on multiple levels and are free of charge.
