Welcome


Welcome to the 2022-2023 Memphis Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics! Whether you are brand new to the Memphis community, a seasoned MAND member or a student just starting to explore all this profession holds for you , I want to personally welcome you all to be a part of this vibrant group of nutrition professionals! MAND is comprised of more than one hundred exceptional professionals, including Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs), Registered Dietetic Technicians (RDT), Dietetic Interns, and Dietetic students in the Memphis community.

And for individuals who are new to MAND, I want to welcome you.

MAND RDNs are licensed by the state of Tennessee and are experts in food and nutrition advice, information and collaborative care for Memphis.
