Welcome to the Connecticut Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics!
As of June 1, 2012, the Connecticut Dietetic Association officially changed its name to the Connecticut Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. This is in line with our national organization, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly the American Dietetic Association) which changed its name on January 1, 2012. We are a professional organization comprised of over 1,000 Registered Dietitians, Dietetic Technicians-Registered, dietetic students and retirees of the profession. The Connecticut Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is your source for credible food and nutrition information. Connecticut Academy members work in various settings and areas of practice across the state, including private practice, hospitals, schools, food service, community nutrition, and much more.

A Message from Dr. Glenna R. McCollum, MPH, RDN, President of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics
In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, which struck the Philippines November 8 with unprecedented deadly force, the thoughts and prayers of all Academy members are with those who were affected by the storm, which still poses a severe threat to life and property in Southeast Asia. The Academy stands in particular with members of the Filipino Americans in Dietetics and Nutrition member interest group -- dedicated to the health and welfare of people of the Filipino community in the U.S. and internationally -- and encourages all Academy members to consider making donations to relief efforts.

Future-Focused Vision for a New Model of Differentiated Practice
The Council on Future Practice has been busy defining and differentiating the practice roles of associate degree, baccalaureate degree and graduate degree-prepared nutrition and dietetics practitioners and the knowledge and skills that will be the basis for the educational preparation at each level of the continuum. Click here for the final report which is a future-focused (10 years out) vision for a new model of differentiated entry-level nutrition and dietetics practice. This document frames practice roles, knowledge and skills at each of the three different levels based on previous reports produced by the Academy, ACEND, CDR and other sources of information (see the list of references in this PDF document).
