The excitement continues Thursday as our main conference day gets underway. Annual awards will be given to our outstanding MAND members. Speakers will cover a range of topics from clinical nutrition to community health and professional growth. We have three general sessions planned along with three breakout times offering a choice between three sessions at each time.
New pieces of Thursday include mock interviews to help students and dietitians prepare for their exciting futures as well as the opportunity to sign up to have a professional head shot taken by our event photographer. These opportunities are listed as add-ins when you register online – so get registered and sign up! The Regions will also have a presence on Thursday – an effort to help you connect with the colleagues in your communities and take part in the networking and educational opportunities that are happening in your own back yards. Please take the opportunity to wander through our exhibit area and learn about new products and services. Take a moment to thank our industry partners for helping to make this meeting great! And end the evening networking with your colleagues at our cocktail hour or by taking part in an encore of last year’s great workshop – the Nutrition Focused Physical Exam with a hand on focus planned for this year.

Friday, April 28th
Our post-conference on Friday will cover the latest and greatest in Sports Nutrition. The area of sports nutrition has grown tremendously in the past couple of decades and it has opened professional doors for many RDN’s. Whether it’s the school team, a weekend warrior or an elite athlete, the right nutrition plays a master role in the health and performance of the individual. Current Trends in Sports Nutrition will separate fact from fiction and deliver relevant, science-based information that is needed by today’s professionals working with recreational, elite, or competitive athletes across all ages. These sessions are open to coaches, personal trainers, and others in the world of sports nutrition – so it will be an excellent opportunity to share experiences and knowledge.
