    Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics – More Internationally Focused

    As part of a more globalized and integrated world, international Dietitians have a growing interest towards collaboration and participation with the Academy. To better serve those interests, the Academy’s international chapter recently changed its name to International Affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (IAAND). Dietitians from 77 countries have joined IAAND, enriching projects, scientific discussions, and sharing their expertise for enhancing the activities performed. Membership in the Academy includes membership in one of 53 local chapters, such as IAAND.
