Our Purpose: "Go to Grow" at the annual Idaho Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Conference

The purpose of our campaign is to raise enough money to fund the conference fees for the ISU Dietetics Club in order to attend the Idaho Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (IAND) annual meeting.

"Attending IAND conferences during my time at Idaho State exposed me a range of nutrition professionals to learn from while exploring my own career path. I learned how many ways there are to apply nutrition to improving the health of our country and world. I built my resume by contributing posters to showcase dietetics-related projects, like Benny's Pantry. I also fostered meaningful relationships with faculty and fellow students that deepened my experience in the program. IAND conferences were both fun and worthwhile in my professional development." - Jenny Brooks, Johns Hopkins master degree candidate and ISU alumna

This conference is held to provide educational opportunities for both dietitians and students in all three branches of dietetics. Being able to attend this conference is a unique experience that many college students are unable to afford. Your contribution will change that. Your gift will ensure that future generations of dietitians will be able to take advantage of this opportunity to become highly productive members of their profession.

    This is a very worthy cause. Many times as a professional nurse I have had to call upon the talents of a dietitian for help. Thank goodness they are everywhere essential such as hospitals, assisted living places, school cafeterias etc. etc.

Your impact

The knowledge and experience gained at the Idaho Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Annual Meeting is essential and invaluable, and students may not have another opportunity to attend these sessions in any other venue before graduation. The meeting also offers the chance to make business contacts, meet with registered dietitians in every field, and learn and participate in current research opportunities. As students, we can apply what we've learned to not only our college courses, but also our internships and future careers.

Thank you for your support of the ISU Dietetics Club members.

Why are donations necessary?

The Idaho Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics annual meeting is hosted every April. Dietetics spans a wide range of information, and in the past, session topics have ranged from hunger and food sustainability in Idaho to buzzwords like organic and GMO and what they mean to the general public. Sessions have also covered sports nutrition, international nutritional concerns, autoimmune disorders, malnutrition, obesity, and hundreds more modern, innovative, and applicable topics. The education and opportunities presented to those who attend this conference are invaluable, and translate directly into how dietitians and students can treat their patients and help the community.

In 2017, the conference will be held in Boise, Idaho. Pre-registration for attendance is $145. Students are responsible for their own lodging, transportation costs, and additional academy fees.

Growing to become an RD

"I think the two things the Idaho Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has taught me is to always keep learning and studying the newest evidenced based research regarding nutrition, as well as to step up and get involved. The field of Dietetics has some tremendous opportunities to grow in various professional fields, and the Idaho Academy has given me the tools to do so." Kristopher Crane, ISU alumnus and Registered Dietician

A Registered Dietitian is someone who has undergone extensive training and education to provide patients and community with the highest level of nutritional counseling, sport performance, chronic disease management, in addition to being active members of the community and shaping the landscape of food through evidence based policy. Through its three branches: community, clinical, and foodservice, dietetics is becoming more important every single day-- and not just to our healthcare system, but to each of us individually as we become more aware of the impact and influence that nutrition has on our health.
