ADA Changes Its Name to Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

 

AND Logo

The American Dietetic Association is officially changing its name to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

The announcement was made Saturday, September 24, 2011 at ADA's Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo in San Diego, Calif. The change will go into effect January 2012.

The new name complements the focus of the organization to improve the nutritional well-being of the public, while communicating the academic expertise of our members and supporting our history as a food and science-based profession.

"Thus, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics quickly and accurately communicates our identity—who we are and what we do," said registered dietitian and ADA President Sylvia Escott-Stump.
