Student Opportunities

Take your FNCE® virtual experience to the next level by attending a variety of sessions and activities designed just for you by the Academy and the Committee for Lifelong Learning.

School Spirit: Register Students for FNCE® 2020

The Academy’s Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo™ helps instill professional practice beliefs, values, attitudes and behaviors in students that will prepare them for practice and lifelong learning. Educators: Give your students the best possible start in dietetics and register them for FNCE® 2020.

The Academy will recognize six dietetics education programs, one for each program type: Didactic Program in Dietetics, Dietetic Internship, Coordinated Program in Dietetics, Dietetic Technician Program, Future Education Model Graduate program, and Future Education Model Bachelor’s program. The six education programs that register the highest percentage of students to FNCE® will have the opportunity for a virtual VIP Meet and Greet after FNCE® with Academy President Linda Farr, RDN, CSOWM, LD, FAND and the Board of Directors.

In addition, each winning school will receive complimentary site access for a Center for Lifelong Learning online module from the Certificate of Training programs. In case of a tie, a random drawing will be held of the programs with the highest percentage of attendees.

If you are interested in having your program considered for this opportunity, work with your educator to submit your number of total enrollment for your program, number of students registered for FNCE® and the percentage this represents to education@eatright.org by October 9. #SchoolSpirit
