Welcome to the Maryland Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics!


Maryland Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Awards for 2015

Each year the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) gives us the opportunity to recognize Dietitians and Dietetic Technicians in our state who have contributed to the field and to the profession.  These awards are the Recognized Young Dietitian, Recognized Dietetic Technician, Emerging Dietetic Leader, Outstanding Dietitian, Outstanding Dietetics Student and Outstanding Dietetics Educator.  Criteria for eligibility

Please take a few minutes to read through the award descriptions and nominate a professional or student for one of these prestigious awards.  This is an opportunity to recognize our peers and demonstrate to the Academy that Maryland has some outstanding professionals in the field of nutrition and dietetics. 

Please submit nominations via email to MAND Awards Chair, Kelly Ort (kelort@gmail.com), by December 31, 2014.
