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. 

We are a dynamic group of individuals with varied areas of expertise in the field of nutrition, health, and wellness. The Central District offers several membership meetings throughout the year for continuing education, and they stay connected to the community through networking and volunteer events. A quarterly newsletter keeps you abreast of upcoming activities, directs you to our social media outlets, and introduces you to the Central AZAND members through our member spotlight to maintain the “small community” feel.

Meet the Central District Board.

Qualification of AZ-AND District Membership

  • Any person who is a member in good standing of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is eligible to become a member of an AZAND District (Central, Southern, Northern, etc). Members may hold membership in more than one district.
