After almost 100 years, the American Dietetic Association (ADA), the world’s largest organization of food and nutrition professionals, this month changed its name to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. ADA President Sylvia Escott-Stump, MA, RD, LDN, announced the change at the opening session of the ADA’s 2011 Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo in San Diego last September.
“Protecting the public’s health is the highest priority of ADA and our members, and our new name complements our focus: the nutritional well-being of the American public,” Escott-Stump said. “The name Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics promotes the strong science background and academic expertise of our members, primarily registered dietitians. Nutrition science underpins wellness, prevention and treatment,” she said.
The ADA’s website remains www.eatright.org, and the Eat Right logo will remain a part of the organization’s graphic identity.
