A Message from our President
Welcome to the Rhode Island Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics! RIAND is the local Rhode Island affiliate of The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. It is our mission to empower our members through education and advocacy to serve their communities as nutrition experts. To me, that means that we work both for our members and the public. Our goal is that RIAND members will be the best, brightest and most sought-after nutrition professionals in the state of Rhode Island so that they may serve the public as the most qualified nutrition experts.
Registered Dietitian Nutritionists are highly trained medical professionals. You will find RIAND members in several different industries from in-patient dietitians at any of our hospitals, to out-patient and private practice, pediatrics, renal disease, diabetes management, research, higher education, community education, sports nutrition, corporate wellness, food companies, pharmaceutical companies, formula companies, grocery stores and many more! That is part of what I love about being a dietitian – we have so many career options!
The 2015-2016 RIAND Board of Directors is committed to our Mission and to our Strategic Plan to position the registered dietitian nutritionist front and center in the eyes and minds of the medical community and the citizens of Rhode Island. I look forward to working with my colleagues this coming year and hearing from you and the public.
Please do not hesitate to contact me directly at Katiemulligan1@gmail.com with any questions or concerns about RIAND.
