President's Message

Alexandra Bechard

On behalf of the South Suburban Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (SSAND) I would like to welcome all those interested in furthering their knowledge of nutrition and the professions involved. Being a member of SSAND has been a very rewarding experience for me in more ways than I could have imagined and I am dedicated to providing the same rewarding experience to our members. As a part of this district you are exposed to a variety of educational presentations, networking opportunities, leadership opportunities and of course fun! Our Board of Directors have dedicated themselves to creating an inclusive, educational and professional community for all to enjoy. We love to see new and veteran members alike. If you have an interest in nutrition, this a great group for you.

I look forward to another great year and hope you will too!

Alexandra Bechard
SSAND President
