The Pennsylvania Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and Jessica Bachman, PhD, MPH, MS, RD, the Academy Foundation’s volunteer Fundraising Champion for Pennsylvania, recently held a very creative T-Shirt Fundraiser. Donors could choose one of four t-shirts with the PAND logo and the effort sold 55 t-shirts, raising $355.60 on behalf of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation. Donors who participated in the event are encouraged to wear their t-shirts at the PAND Annual Meeting & Exhibition from April 21–23 for the group picture.

Bachman is an Assistant Professor at the University of Scranton in the Department of Exercise Science and was a previous Foundation Award Recipient.

“I enjoy being a fundraising champion for the Foundation because receiving an award from the Foundation when I was a student was an empowering moment for me. It not only was very helpful financially but, it confirmed that I was following the right career path and it was encouraging that I was being recognized for my hard work and dedication to my studies. I want to ensure that as many students as possible can continue to have the same wonderful experience that I had thanks to the Foundation.”

The Academy Foundation does not receive a portion of any member dues and relies on donations to thrive. Affiliate Fundraising Champions, like Bachman, have a passion for giving back to their chosen profession and an appreciation of the great work the Foundation does as the only charitable organization devoted exclusively to nutrition and dietetics are critical to our success.

The Academy Foundation would like to thank Bachman, and all PAND donors for participating!
