We are looking forward to seeing all of you in Santa Fe next week at the NMAND Pre-Conference Event on Wednesday, April 19th, and at the all-day NMAND Annual Conference: Put Your Best Fork Forward on Thursday, April 20th.
The agendas for both events are on the "Meetings and Events" page and the registration page at http://www.eatright-nm.org/register.
The educational festivities kick off on Wednesday evening at 6:30 pm at the Draft Station in Santa Fe http://draft-station.com with Sara Robbins from Dairy MAX http://www.dairymax.org/. Sara will be treating us to dinner with a food demonstration and to catch us up on the DASH Diet. And you just might get to mingle with our very special out-of-town guest, Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics President-Elect Donna Martin http://www.eatrightpro.org/resource/leadership/board-of-directors/about-the-board-of-directors/donna-s-martin-eds-rdn-ld-sns-fand.
Plan to spend Wednesday night at the Hilton Santa Fe Historic Plaza Hotel, just a 4 minute walk from the Draft Station, so that you can be with us bright and early for the NMAND Annual Conference.
Thursday starts with continental breakfast and the President's welcome where you will get to meet your new NMAND Board http://www.eatright-nm.org/board/, followed by a very special morning keynote with Donna Martin providing us the 2017 Academy Update. We had a bit of a sneak peek at Donna's presentation, and we are thrilled to have her coming to share her passion for nutrition with us and to keep us up to date with everything the Academy is doing for its members.
And that's all just before 10:00 am!
Throughout the day, we have hot topic sessions on nutrition and brain health, eating disorders, and the metabolic triad. Want to learn more about running a private practice? We've got you covered! Want to understand how to protect the public and maintain our licensure? We've got that too! We have a strong focus on diabetes at the conference this year, with five sessions offered to further prepare NMAND members to be on the forefront of diabetes prevention and treatment.
Just before your NMAND-provided lunch, during the business meeting, you'll hear what your NMAND Board has been up to this year, where we are headed, and how you can get involved. This is also when we reveal the winners of the annual NMAND awards for Outstanding Dietitian of the Year, Recognized Young Dietitian of the Year, Emerging Dietetic Leader, Outstanding Student in a Didactic Program in Dietetics, and Outstanding Dietetic Intern. We are very excited about the NMAND Hot Chile Pepper Award recipient, given to a
person who is not a RDN, but who supports the mission and vision of NMAND and its members.
Following the business meeting, grab your lunch and peruse the NMAND Poster Session to learn more about what students and professionals are working on related to nutrition research and practice.
And if that weren't enough, we will have a fun fundraiser for ANDPAC http://www.eatrightpro.org/resources/advocacy/political-action-committee/what-is-a-political-action-committee, and a silent auction with loads of cool stuff, including the chance to win a free FNCE 2017 <http://eatrightfnce.org/>registration!
YOU DO NOT WANT TO MISS THIS CONFERENCE!
SEE YOU THERE!
