About Us

On behalf of the board, welcome to the Memphis Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics website! The Memphis Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (MAND) organization exemplifies a place for Registered Dietitians/Nutritionists, Dietetic Technicians Registered, dietetic interns and students to find a community that drives its members to promote health and well-being through food and nutrition for all Memphians. MAND members are the food and nutrition experts that work throughout Shelby county and outlying areas who are also members of our affiliate, the Tennessee Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and our national organization, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

This organization is run with the help of our amazing board and volunteers.  The MAND board is comprised of a variety of nutrition leaders within our own Memphis community.  The board is actively at work planning the upcoming year. We understand that this year may look a little different for all of us, but we are planning to continue to offer networking opportunities, continuing education events, and fundraisers for our scholarships. Whether in person or online, we are planning to continue to help you be an active member of MAND while continuing to impact the Memphis community.
