The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation is excited to be collaborating with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’ Research, International, and Scientific Affairs team and other stakeholders and partners to create and offer fellowship opportunities for current and future credentialed food and nutrition practitioners at all career levels that advance fellow skills, knowledge, and visibility, hone the fellow’s expertise, and advance the Foundation and Academy strategic plans.
Our Foundation has invested more than $1,000,000 in Fellowships that deploy dynamic registered dietitian nutritionists in the US and globally to address the greatest food and nutrition challenges throughout the world. Fellows conduct research and provide nutrition education that improves and sustains nutritional health locally and globally, including robust dissemination activities.
The Foundation’s successful fellowship model is currently being scaled to:
- Accelerate improvements in the health of the public, including prevention and well-being, health care and health systems, and food and nutrition safety and security
- Create unique educational opportunities for credentialed and future practitioners at all levels
- Expand practitioner expertise, including leadership skills
- Demonstrate the value of credentialed practitioners and nutrition interventions in a variety of settings and areas of practice, both in the U.S. and globally
