WELCOME

The Kansas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (KSAND), formerly known as the Kansas Dietetic Association, serves hundreds of dietetic professionals who strive to optimize the nutrition, health, and well-being of Kansans. We are an affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the largest U.S. organization of food and nutrition professionals.

In 2017, we celebrated our 80th Anniversary as a nonprofit organization. Our members include registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) and dietetic technicians working in diverse settings. Examples of practice areas include community, government and healthcare institutions, research, education, food service management, business and industry, students, entrepreneurial business, and media.

The value of the the dietetic profession is promoted among members through partnerships with the KSAND Foundation, state districts, practice groups, other organizations, and sponsors. Our mission is to accelerate improvements in state-wide health and well-being through food and nutrition with a vision of a state where all people thrive through the transformative power of food and nutrition. Ongoing professional development, innovative business practices, and engagement in nutrition-related public policy further supports this vision for our members and in our communities.
