WELCOME TO THE NEW HOME OF THE HOUSTON ACADEMY OF NUTRITION AND DIETETICS!
What is the Houston Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics?
We are the Houston affiliate of The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the world's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals. The Academy is committed to improving the nation's health and advancing the profession of dietetics through research, education and advocacy.*
Membership in the Academy*
Approximately 70 percent of the Academy's over 75,000 members are registered dietitians (RDs) or registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) and 2 percent are dietetic technicians, registered (DTRs). Other Academy members include students, educators, researchers, retired and international members. Nearly half of all the Academy's members hold advanced academic degrees.
Academy members represent a wide range of practice areas and interests. Affiliate, dietetics practice, and member interest groups share the common purpose of serving the profession, the public, and members in such areas as continuing professional education, public information on nutrition and health, government advocacy and relations, membership recruitment, Academy leadership, and public relations. These membership groups reflect the many characteristics of the Academy's membership and the public it serves.
