About Diablo Valley

President’s Message:

To my fellow nutrition professionals and students,

 Like many of you, the field of dietetics is the perfect blend of two of my passions: food and helping others. I believe that food is medicine for the body. My career started with Sutter Health as a clinical dietitian working mainly with adults and has begun expanding into the world of outpatient pediatrics. As I grow into this new role, I’m excited to have the honor of serving you all as the 2019-2020 President for the Diablo Valley District.

 The Board has many exciting events planned for this year and I encourage all members to participate. As our home team Warriors’ slogan goes there’s “Strength in numbers.” Word of mouth and face to face interactions are powerful. Let’s come together and share our knowledge, resources, and opportunities to accomplish a common goal: to strengthen our profession and promote the nutritional well-being of the public.

Here’s a sneak peek on what’s in store for this year:

  • DVD will continue to provide CE programs to keep our members up to date on professional development. This year we have a half day conference planned for Spring 2020!
  • DVD will have an electronic payment option to complete the membership application online.
  • DVD will continue to provide members with networking opportunities as well as job opportunities.

 Please do not hesitate to reach out to your DVD leadership team on how we can better serve you. Thank you and I look forward to a great year.
