The NAND website received a face lift in the new year and we are super excited about it! We hope our new layout will make it easier to find what you need while giving us a more modernized look. Check it out at

Our new Student’s Section is up! We hope this will serve as a one-stop-shop for resources on local scholarships, volunteer opportunities, internship program information, RD exam resources, and more! This section will be an ongoing project so make sure to check back often for updates.  Huge shout out to students Korissa Earls (MTSU) and Bailey Pihera (Lipscomb) for your contributions to making this new section possible. If you have suggestions for additional resources to be added to this section, please email us at

NAND is in the process of updating our “Find A RD” page and we need your help! We have so many wonderfully talented experts in our area, but very few names listed currently in our directory. Throughout the year, NAND often receives inquiries looking for expert dietitians and we would love to refer them to you. Please consider sharing your contact information and area(s) of expertise by clicking here. Not only is this an opportunity to advertise your services but also a great way to keep in contact with other practicing dietitians in the area.
