President's Message

Julie Schumacher, EdD, RD, LDN

Welcome CIDA Members and Friends!

I am honored to serve as President of CIDA for the upcoming year and to follow in the steps of wonderful Past-Presidents. We are working on developing an engaging schedule of meetings this year to include the opportunity to earn 8 CEU’s. See the link below for information on earning 12 additional CEU’s for participating in Illinois State University‘s monthly research journal club. This is a great way to connect with area dietitians and mentor dietetic interns as you respond to discussion questions related to the Academy’s Journal articles. As you look at the schedule of meetings, please consider taking an active role in CIDA this year- attend meetings, volunteer for the annual March 5K race, and see the benefits of networking through your involvement. Let me know if you have any ideas or suggestions for CIDA as we continue to advocate for the dietetics profession through the promotion of optimal nutrition.
