About Us

Welcome to the Memphis Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (MAND).

I am Sara Foley, and I am beyond excited and honored to serve as your MAND president for 2018-2019.  For over a decade, I have spent my career working in clinical, administrative and education settings, and served on local and state professional boards since 2009. As we enter the second century of our profession, it is vital for us to be present in our community, and provide the public with the knowledge and skill-sets that we are THE food and nutrition experts. We as members must stay involved and provide opportunities to serve and advocate for our local, state, and national communities outside of our day-to-day roles. As a mother, educator, and RDN, I see opportunities each day on the possibilities of how we can make a difference and impact our Memphis community.

Under the leadership of our affiliates, Tennessee Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (TAND) and the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), we will support our mission: to promote optimal nutrition and well being for all people by advocating for it’s members. Our board is compromised of leaders from different facilities and settings within our community to bring a variety of ideas and opportunities to our organization. I am thrilled to see what we can achieve this upcoming year!

Sara Foley,  MAND President 2018-2019
