Healthy Carolina Director Michelle Burcin says students can decrease their chances of contracting diabetes by staying fit and eating healthy, and USC is here to help.

"We work very closely with our doctors and nurses in the health center," says Burcin, "We screen over there, so if someone has a body mass index above a healthy range, they get referred to our dietician who is the food expert on campus."

USC dieticianDebra Zipple councils students in order to help them identify how to better prepare foods and how to eat healthy in order to lose weight or get blood glucose levels under control.

Student Health Services offers free courses to understand portion control and what their portions should be.
