AODA Grows in Strength
  • The American Overseas Dietetic Association (AODA) has grown.  We now have 1000 members living in more than 70 countries. Members are U.S. registered dietitians and qualified food and nutrition professionals from international dietetics communities. Members practice in varied settings such as colleges and universities, schools, community settings, overseas US military bases, local hospitals and clinics, private practice, consultation, industry, and food service facilities.  As desired, individual dietitians may join the Academy and become affiliated with this dynamic AODA group. Qualifications for International membership include completion of formal training in food, nutrition or dietetics received outside the United States or US Territories, verified by the country’s professional dietetic association and/or national regulatory body. International members may be appointed to serve on Academy committees and may attend all meetings. A real benefit is having access to the Evidence Analysis Library (EAL), Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (JAND) and great materials!
