New Jersey Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics
MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is getting ready to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2017. At the same time our association, NJAND is celebrating 85 years of serving each other and our fellow citizens! That's over 31,040 days of promoting health and healing through nutrition and dietetics activities in a variety of settings. Having worked with many students and preceptors over the years, I know we are a group who wants to help others live healthier and more productive lives. We do this in traditional and non-traditional roles. Our profession has grown and changed so much in the last century, it's exciting to imagine what lies ahead. What innovations will take us into the next century? Have you already started a new project or program with future-focused outcomes?
Did you know that the Council on Future Practice is offering the Transforming Vision into Action Award to honor outstanding contributions to the profession? RDNs, NDTRs and their teams who have developed innovative programs can learn more at ww.eatrightPRO.org/TransformingVision.
I believe there's a team from New Jersey who is deserving of this award - so consider your own practice or that of your organization and apply!
Kathleen Carozza, MA, RDN
2016-2017 President, NJAND
