On behalf of the Connecticut Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (CT Academy) Board of Directors, and our 1000 plus members, welcome to our CT Academy website.
As the 2020-2021 President with a diverse and committed Board of Directors, The CT Academy is positioned to fulfill its mission – we promote optimal nutrition and well-being for Connecticut residents. We are the leading source of food and nutrition services through outreach, advocacy, and evidence-based practices. Our members translate the science of nutrition into practical solutions for healthy living.
With the stress and upheaval caused by Covid-19 and a renewed focus on institutional racism comes an opportunity to re-imagine how we do business. We have an opportunity to do better, to rethink and refocus on the possibilities. We are evaluating the communication platforms we use and moving to ones more suited to our “virtual” life. We are talking about race and exploring ways to increase diversity in our profession. In addition, we are focusing on adding value for our members.
I love feedback. If you have a suggestion, an observation or just want to say hello, I am ready to listen.
Stay Safe, Be Well
Helana Hoover-Litty, MS, RDN
