Northern Illinois Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

President's Message

Jackie Kirchner, RDN


Welcome to a new year here with the Northern Illinois Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics! I am excited to serve as your president this year. Whether you have been a member for several years, are a new or potential member, or a student, I am excited that we have the opportunity to get to know each other, learn new things, and grow in our profession together.

I wouldn’t be able to do this job without the help and support of the board and all of our members. We are working hard to bring new ideas and learning opportunities to local RDNs, DTRs, and students of dietetics to the local community. If you have any ideas, want to join our board, or would like to volunteer in some fashion, please let us know!

Details of the year’s programming will be coming soon. In the meantime, please sign up to be a member and ensure you’re on our email list so you have all the latest information regarding meetings, social events, etc. I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you and see you at our first meeting of the year!

Jackie Kirchner, RDN
