Central (C-AZAND)

Welcome to the Central District of the Arizona Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics! Our district represents Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics members of Maricopa County, which includes 12 cities in the greater Phoenix vicinity. Academy members from Pinal, Gila, and Graham counties may also choose to be members of the Southwest, Southern, or Northern districts. 

CAZAND is bringing cutting edge programs to our district so we can provide opportunities for RDNs to be recognized as the nutrition experts. This year CAZAND will offer our members both in-person and virtual nutrition educational meetings.   

Our desire is to continue playing a role in developing a positive learning environment for Registered Dietitian Nutritionists/RDNs-to-be and current and future Dietetic Technicians, Registered, of all backgrounds and fields of work.  By doing so we provide opportunities for RDNs and NDTRs to meet their career goals. We feel it is important to embrace our younger members and students as they begin their dietetics career.  This will help build a strong foundation for success as an organization.

Our goal is that the CAZAND offers events in all areas of nutrition that are pertinent and provide opportunities to network for our members.
