Thank you to everyone who came out for our annual Meet and Greet!!
Thank you to everyone who helped in making DAND's 1st Annual Hayride a success! DAND members, as well as family and friends met at Bellevue State Park in Wilmington Delaware last Saturday for a fun-filled evening. The event involved a tour of the park as well as a bonfire that included delicious snacks such as s'mores, fresh apple cider, and trail mix. We hope to see you next year!
Thank you Emily for spreading the word about National Nutrition Month and RDN's!
DAND was well represented by our volunteers who talked to the public about the importance of good nutrition and going to a qualified nutrition expert (LDN) for reliable information. We all had fun riding the Smoothie Bike too! Thanks so much to all the members and students who came out to help make this event such a success!
Delaware Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics celebrated “Take Your Congressman To Work” day with Congressman John C. Carney. The DAND Public Policy Coordinator Kelli Janowski, MS, RD, LDN and State Policy Representative Irene Soucy, MS, RD, LDN coordinated the event with Kathy Keuski, Director of Meals on Wheels of Lewes and Rehoboth. Kelli and Irene were able to deliver meals with Congressman Carney and discuss of the importance of co- sponsoring the Older Americans Act and the Treat and Reduce Obesity Act. After the meal delivery, Meals on Wheels staff, volunteers and Registered Dietitians from private, public and governmental sectors engaged in a question and answer forum with the Congressman Carney to address the health concerns of Delaware’s seniors.
Thank you to everyone who came out and attended DAND's first Wine Tasting Event! It was a huge sucess! We hope to see you at the next one!
On Wednesday, March 19th, several of Delaware's dietitians were in attendance as Delaware's legislature passed a concurrent resolution to recognize March 2014 as National Nutrition Month and encourage the citizens of Delaware to learn and raise awareness about health and nutrition.
Immediately following this reading, we visited with Governor Jack Markell and discussed our mutual concerns - and work - regarding hunger and obesity in the first state.
We are so fortunate to live in a state where our state legislators truly support Registered Dietitians/Nutritionists and look to our participation in the nutrition and well-being of its citizens.
