Southern (S-AZAND)

Welcome to the Southern Arizona Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. The S-AZAND represents members of the Arizona Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics from counties across Southern Arizona, including Pima, Santa Cruz, Greenlee and Cochise. Members from Pinal and Graham counties may also choose to be members of either the Southern or Central District! The more, the merrier!

I am so thrilled to be serving as your 2016-2017 Southern Arizona District President. As a native Southern Arizonan, I have enjoyed many years of working with dietitians throughout the state and beyond. The community of Southern Arizona has specific needs related to nutrition and it is a goal of mine to bring together experts in all areas of nutrition to enhance the health and well being of Southern Arizona.

This year, your S-AZAND Executive Board will be working to develop and implement our long term strategic goals. These goals are focused on enhancing S-AZAND’s presence in the community to promote health of Arizonans and to increase public awareness of the RDN/NDTR, strengthen the leadership within the Executive Board and develop relationships with our AZ Legislators and increase our public policy presence. We will continue to grow through an increased social media presence. We hope to see you at our various continuing education opportunities and our annual networking meeting.
