Founded in 1917, the Academy’s 100,000 credentialed practitioners in the United States and abroad help shape the public’s food choices, positively impacting health and wellness worldwide. The membership includes registered dietitian nutritionists, dietetic technicians, students and others holding baccalaureate and advanced degrees in nutrition and dietetics. To provide members with career strategies that will enable them to prosper in the future, all Academy activities evolve from the Strategic Plan. As the Academy grows, so does the number and variety of benefits we offer to our members. The combination of a diverse and growing membership and the dynamic field of nutrition and dietetics requires a broad and ever-changing array of benefits to meet the needs of members whose interests, skills, backgrounds and experience span the entire profession.
