Southern (S-AZAND)

I am honored to be serving as your 2017-2018 Southern Arizona District President.   I have worked in the field for many years and during this time I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with many of the RDNs and DTRs in our community and remain impressed by the passion, talent and expertise of dietetics professionals working to improve the health and well-being of our community.  It is surely an exciting time in our profession!


This year, the S-AZAND executive board will continue to work on goals set forth during 2016-2017 including enhancing S-AZAND’s presence in the community and in public policy.  In addition, we will be focused on strengthening our membership and enhancing member services and support through events including community service, mentoring, networking and continuing education opportunities.  Together we will continue to lead and support our community to better health outcomes.  We are looking forward to seeing many of you at our various events.
