Our Foundation is welcoming in December by opening our 2020 Award and Research Grant applications. I encourage everyone to check out our application portal for a long list of opportunities available to all Academy members. There are awards for students as well as seasoned professionals such as continuing education, recognition, international and program development. Research grants range from demonstrating the value of registered dietitian nutritionists to nutritional epidemiology. Unless otherwise indicated, the application deadline for all awards and grants is February 1, 2020. These awards and grants empower our members and elevate our profession. Spend a few moments and watch how our awards and grants are making a difference in our profession and impacting the overall health of the general public.
All of our awards and grants are only made possible through the generosity of our donors. Together we are helping create a world where all people thrive through the transformative power of food and nutrition. Please keep the Foundation in mind this holiday season and consider a year-end gift. Here are a few ways in which you can give this December:
