Happy New Year!
On behalf of our Foundation Board of Directors and staff, I want to wish you a happy, healthy and successful 2023! We, at the Foundation look forward to another year in which we support the lives of hundreds of Academy members through scholarships, awards and research grants with the help of your generous support.
Our Foundation’s 2023 Award and Research Grant applications are now open. I strongly encourage you to check out the many opportunities to enrich your career. There are awards for students as well as seasoned professionals such as continuing education, recognition, international and program development. Unless otherwise indicated, the application deadline for all awards and grants is February 21, 2023. These awards and grants empower our members and elevate our profession.
I also want to share two new, free CPEU opportunities you can take advantage of this month:
Academy Foundation Webinar
Register today for a free Foundation webinar on Wednesday, January 11, 2023, from 12:00 – 1:30 pm (Central Time). RDNs working in Food Banks and other feeding programs will discuss the creative ways they were able to deliver nutritious groceries and meals into the hands of those who needed it most during the COVID-19 pandemic. This activity has been submitted for 1.5 CPEU. Support for this webinar was made possible through an educational grant from the National Dairy Council. Learn more and register here.
CPE On-Demand - Targeting Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA) to Impact Preterm Birth
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is pleased to present a new, free self-study module offering .75 CPEUs, funded by Reckitt/Mead Johnson Nutrition. A portion of this sponsorship supports an unrestricted grant to our Academy Foundation as part of our Kids Eat Right public nutrition education program. Learn more and register here.
We are grateful to thousands of Academy members who donate to the Foundation each year to support our many efforts. Please remember the Foundation when you renew your Academy membership online or donate today or anytime during the year. There is no better way to invest in the future of our profession!
With Your Help, We Can Do Even More
