Welcome to the 2017-2018 membership year of the Eastern Illinois Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics!

I am honored to serve as this year’s president for such a fantastic group of nutrition professionals. I look forward to a great year of learning, networking, and fun! Upon membership registration, you will have the potential to receive job openings, awards, CEU’s, life-long friendships, and more.

We will be hosting four meetings this year, and one of them will be a webinar. Also in the upcoming year, we will be creating a private Facebook group for EIAND members in which you will be able to post job openings or start a discussion with fellow nutrition professionals.
I hope that you are as excited as I am about the 2017-2018 year and that you are ready to help make this year our best yet. In order to do so, we encourage you to attend as many events as possible.
