In the Second Century, dietitians have an exciting opportunity to lead joint efforts within our social, political, environmental and health systems to improve individual, community and global health. The Academy continues to create opportunities to empower dietitians by collaborating with other disciplines and professions to solve systemic issues and promote healthy sustainable changes. I encourage young and early career professionals to take advantage of these upcoming leadership opportunities.
My goal is to recruit and empower young and early career professionals to deepen their commitment to the future of the Academy and dietetics profession. Vote for a healthy RANGE of perspectives in the Second Century!
