Eastern Illinois Dietetic Association
Jeanette Andrade, PhD, RDN/LDN
Welcome to a new and exciting year here at EIDA. I am privileged and honored to serve as your president this year. I certainly would not be able to perform this role without the help of our 2016-2017 executive board.
We, the executive board, have been quite busy over the summer: attending IAND’s leadership retreat, planning meetings, and working on IAND’s overarching goals for our district this year.
We are in the midst of planning the exact activities, so stay tuned!
