  • Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation Wimpfheimer-Guggenheim ICDA Welcome Fund

    The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation Wimpfheimer-Guggenheim ICDA Welcome fund provides financial support to new ICDA members. Contact Nicci Brown at for information.

    The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics convened the Research Priorities and Strategies Development Taskforce to establish new research priorities for the organization.
    The Taskforce used a 9-step process to develop priorities that fall under four main themes relevant to nutrition and dietetics research:
    • Nutrition-related Discovery
    • Clinical Nutrition Research
    • Implementation Science
    • Public Health
    Influencing each of the themes is an overarching acknowledgment of the role that all priorities can play in informing nutrition and dietetics education, practice, and policy. The Academy research priorities are intended as a resource for both internal and external stakeholders and have applications for various areas of practice including education, clinical and community practice, management, and of course research and collaboration.
    For more details including a webinar recording, manuscript, and final report, please refer to our Research Priorities website
    We hope that you find these Research Priorities useful and possibly reference them in future projects/proposals or find inspiration for future collaborations.
    If you would like to learn more about the research priorities and how you can put them into practice, please use the following link here to receive additional messages with more examples of how to put these priorities into action!

    Annual congress of Dietetics – online for 22nd-24th April,2021.

    Request from WHO to members of ICDA:

    The World Health Organization (WHO) is currently developing a science-informed guideline on the integrated management of infants and young children at high risk (excessive adiposity) and children and adolescents with obesity using a primary health care approach. As important stakeholders of this guideline, WHO would like to get the input of individual members for prioritizing the questions and outcomes that will need to be addressed in this normative work.
    The prioritization exercise consists of an online questionnaire with a preliminary list of questions and outcomes for your assessment. You will have the opportunity to submit comments or suggestions or to propose additional questions and outcomes. There will be questions that will allow us to understand the background of respondents. Your details will not be linked with your responses in any report or publication.
    Should you agree to participate, the questionnaire can be accessed here or by copying and pasting in your browser this link:  
    Responses submitted in other formats will not be considered. If needed, you can stop at any time, save your responses and resume later. We will be grateful if you can send us your responses by 10 March 2021.
    If you have technical difficulties with the online questionnaire, please send an email to with the subject “GDG Childhood Obesity”.
    Thank you very much for your consideration and we look forward to your contribution.
