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.
