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 an opportunity to enhance their future career in nutrition and dietetics, encourage them to register for FNCE® 2021.
The Academy will recognize five dietetics education programs, one for each program type: Didactic Program in Dietetics, Dietetic Internship, Coordinated Program in Dietetics, Dietetic Technician Program, and Future Education Model Graduate program. The five education programs that bring the highest percentage of students to FNCE® will have the opportunity for a virtual VIP Meet and Greet after FNCE® with Academy President Kevin Sauer, PhD, RDN, 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.)
To have your program considered for this opportunity, work with your fellow educators to submit the following by October 1, 2021:
- the number of total enrollment for your program
- the number of students from your program registered for FNCE®
- the percentage that this represents (divide second number by first number, then multiply by 100)
And don’t forget about the Foundation Student Stipend program! The application will be available soon.
