Students who are interested in getting involved in the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics should consider this opportunity. This experience would be a nice addition to your resume and application packet for a Dietetic Internship.
Student members in the Academy with strong leadership skills who will be enrolled in the last year of an ACEND-accredited program during the 2015-2016 academic year are eligible to apply to be nominated Dietetics Student Representative of the ACEND board. Student representatives serve a two-year term in which they actively participate in two face-to-face ACEND board meetings and ten conference calls per year. They are appointed to ACEND committees and participate in the Academy’s Student Advisory Committee. ACEND business related expenses incurred while serving as a Student Representative member are reimbursed by ACEND.
