President's Message

Desiray Yeaw

Greetings All,

I hope this message finds you and your loved ones well. As we continue to press forward into the unknown of what seems to be ever changing circumstances I would like to take this opportunity to express immense gratitude for our CIAND Board of Directors. Their commitment and hard work has allowed the CIAND to provide opportunities for our members to learn and connect, despite the fact that we are not able to come together in person. I also want to thank our CIAND members for their grace, patience, and continued participation as we navigate this program year in the virtual arena.

So far this program year the CIAND has had the pleasure of hosting many brilliant speakers as continuing education opportunities for our members. In September we heard from Taylor Wolfram, MS, RDN, LDN as she presented an “Introduction to Intuitive Eating for Nutrition Professionals”. We also kicked off a two part culinary creations series with Ashley Simper, MS, RDN, LDN as she shared her expertise on recipe modification. CIAND finished 2020 with “Culinary Creations Part 2 – Cooking Classes in a Virtual World – Holiday Edition". During this event Golda Ewalt, MS, RD, LDN, CEC taught participants the ins and outs of executing a cooking demo on a virtual stage.

We started off 2021 on a positive note with a virtual “Sushi 101” social event where members could watch & follow along at home as Brooke Rush, RD, LDN taught us how to make sushi! 

We have many more exciting opportunities in the works for the rest of the year and hope you will join us! If you are interested in becoming a member or have a question about the CIAND, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Sincerely,

Desiray Yeaw MS, RD, LDN
