Between classes, practice, team meetings, and finding time to study, the lifestyle of a student-athlete creates challenges in meeting nutritional demands. At Auburn University, we believe nutrition has a direct effect in helping our athletes achieve their true potential. For sound nutrition information and guidance, Auburn Sports Medicine offers nutrition education and counseling.
Scott Sehnert, MS, RD, CSSD, CSCS and a team of three registered sports dieticians coordinate sports nutrition services and work in conjunction with Auburn Athletics trainers, strength & conditioning coaches, and team coaching staffs, as well as other student services. The sports nutrition team works with all of Auburn's 21 teams to help maximize the training and recovery through planned nutritional efforts.
