2016-2017 Award Nominations


A leader doesn’t always have a fancy title like CEO, director or manager! A leader can be defined as a difference maker or someone who isn’t satisfied with status quo. Each year, the Nashville Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics takes time to celebrate and honor the accomplishments of both members and community leaders who make a difference in the lives of others.

We ask for your participation in the selection process. Nominate a NAND difference maker today!

We are accepting nominations for awards in these categories:

  • Outstanding Dietitian
  • Recognized Young Dietitian
  • Emerging Dietetics Leader
  • Outstanding Dietetic Educator
  • Outstanding Dietetics Student Award
  • Iris Award (Honoring a NON-TAND member that has contributed significantly throughout the year to the field of nutrition/dietetics in TN)
  • NAND Scholarship

Please follow the link for more detailed information and be sure to email your nominations to NAND’s Awards Chair, Kristen Xiong at kristen.r.xiong@gmail.com no later than Wednesday, November 2nd!


Recipes Needed!


NAND has been asked to develop recipes using fresh vegetables in an effort to assist community-based organizations. OneGenAway has a food truck that distributes donated foods throughout middle Tennessee (www.OneGenAway.com). They are looking for recipes to pass out with their food donations that include fresh vegetables. Recipes should be easy, incorporate only a few ingredients, and of course be yummy and healthy!

Please send recipes, or direct any questions to Emily Hogan at Emilyhoganrd@hotmail.com
