Illinois Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Diversity Statement

The Illinois Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics aims to amplify the diverse voices of our profession. We support our community members by creating an environment that encompasses individuals from all backgrounds, ages, races, genders, sexual orientations, cultures, experiences, and abilities. We do this by increasing outreach to students to promote our profession, provide support to current dietetic students, strengthen connections between dietetics professionals, and strive to improve the well-being of all the communities we serve.
