A Message from Lisa Herzig, PhD, RD, CDE, Chair

Welcome to the California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation. The California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation (CANDF) is a non-profit organization (94-6126086) that promotes optimal health and nutritional status of the public by supporting quality dietetics practice, education and research. CANDF is the philanthropic arm of the California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Did you know that as a member of The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, you are automatically a member of the California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and part of the CANDF?  

The primary goal of the CANDF is to provide opportunities for students, interns and California RDNs by awarding scholarships to those who are eligible, promotion of further education, and research. Take some time and read through the many scholarship opportunities posted on the CANDF website. Furthermore, CANDF works to promote continued health in your communities for California RDNs and those clients and patients that need our nutrition and dietetics expertise. 

We will be rolling out some new programs this 2019-2020 year, so stay tuned. Look for your chance to volunteer your time through scholarship donations, helping with fundraising efforts, and spreading the word about CANDF. Our team welcomes any and all comments you may have and we look forward to seeing you at the CAND Annual Conference in Riverside on April 16-18, 2020. I leave you with the words of Hippocrates, "Our Food should be our medicine and our medicine should be our Food."
