Dorothy Chen-Maynard Annual Award
Through the generous contribution of Dorothy Chen-Maynard, PhD, RD, Program Coordinator of the Nutrition and Food Sciences at CSUSB, this annual award for membership was created to provide needed financial assistance of nutrition professionals to pay for Annual Membership dues with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (the Academy). This assistance is provided with the goal that recipients will go on to be successful members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (formerly American Dietetic Association) to strengthen their relationship within the profession. There will be 4 awards given out each year with a value of Academy annual dues, until the funds are exhausted.
