The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation’s Abbott Nutrition Alliance Award recognizes up to four Academy members annually working in a hospital setting who have made significant contributions to improve awareness and take action to address malnutrition with an award of $1,400.
To be eligible, candidates must be a registered dietitian nutritionist, be an active Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics member, work at least 30 hours a week in a clinical setting, and work as a part of an interdisciplinary team with other healthcare professionals.
Have you or someone you know made strides towards malnutrition identification in your clinical facility? Candidates for the 2019 Abbott Nutrition Alliance Award can be nominated by others or may self-nominate. Applications open in mid-November and will be posted on the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation website.
We were greatly impressed by all 2018 applicants and are tremendously proud to announce this year’s award winners. Notably, this recognition award does not specify how recipients must use their award funds. Despite this, all of our 2018 recipients chose to use the funding to provide further education and training for their teams.
