Outstanding Dietetic Intern of the Year Award

The purpose of the Outstanding Dietetic Student Award program is to recognize the emerging leadership and achievement of students in ACEND-accredited and approved dietetics education programs and encourage their participation in the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. 

A student from each type of education program within a state is selected by each state association.

For the past few years, we have been fortunate to have one of our dietetic interns
selected to receive this award.

Each award winners name is published in the AND Journal and receives a congratulatory letter and certificate signed by the president of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Congratulations on Your Accomplishment!
