The Fellow of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (FAND) recognizes Academy members who have distinguished themselves among their colleagues, as well as in their communities, by their service to the dietetics profession and by optimizing the nation’s health through food and nutrition. Fellows are why the public trusts and chooses Academy members as food, nutrition, and health experts. They provide outreach in their communities, within their work settings, and have a greater commitment to continuing professional development, leadership, writing, speaking, policy and advocacy or research.
