Academy Leader and Foundation Volunteer Who Sees the Need First Hand

“I loved serving on the Academy Foundation Research Committee, but I was always heartbroken when we would review and score proposals for Foundation grants and have to choose a single recipient. Too many excellent research proposals go unfunded each year. More Foundation donations from members would mean more research could be conducted and published by our peers, which is a way to elevate the role of the RDN in nutrition research and application. If you are able to give a donation to the Foundation, please do so. We need to support the growth and promotion of our profession!”

Amy Myrdal Miller is a consistent Foundation donor, an award-winning dietitian/nutritionist, farmer’s daughter, and published author. The Foundation relies on donations to thrive, please consider a contribution when renewing your membership online each year or donate today.
