Central Illinois Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

President's Message

Ciarra Kent

This is an exciting year for the CIAND district with four great sessions planned throughout the year for members to learn, network and grow together. In addition to our four annual meetings, member benefits include access to dietetic internship research presentations during the months of April and May for CPEs, access to a journal club hosted by Illinois State University and regular presentations by the OSF interns. These opportunities during the year provide our members with a great membership value.

Thank you to our board members who continue to work hard to bring meaningful presentations to the organization, represent the CIAND district through media activities and serve as mentors and preceptors to our many dietetic internship sites in our districts.

We have another great year ahead of us as we continue to represent Central Illinois as the nutrition experts.
