Letter from the President: Danielle Nava

Hello new and returning members of the Student Dietetic Association (SDA)!

We are excited to welcome you to SDA for the 2017-2018 academic year. This is going to be an eventful year, and we are happy for you to be on this journey with us. Understanding nutrition and how food interacts with the human body is very complex and requires vast knowledge in the field. In the field we have chosen, not only is it important to retain knowledge of nutrition and dietetics, it is just as equally, if not more, important to be able to share that knowledge so it is understood by individuals and is impactful enough to ensure adherence. Together we will work on this skill during our events on campus, in (serving) the community, and through our volunteer work. My hope is to provide you with many leadership opportunities and experiences that will promote growth. Inviting guest speakers will provide networking opportunities to help our members make valuable connections within the field of Nutrition. Sending out a club survey has helped us match our goals and vision for the club with yours. “As an organization, SDA is only as strong as its members”, we need your support and involvement to succeed, and together we can continue to make SDA one of the most active clubs on campus by creating more events that touch the entire campus population. We hope to make this year enjoyable and a memorable experience for all, by creating more socializing events. It is important for us to get to know one another, and network! I am here to offer my support, and to answer any questions that you may have. I am very much looking forward to working with all of you. Good luck with the new semester!
