President's Message from the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Sylvia Escott-Stump Changing Lives in Little Ways...Every Day
March 2012 Issue Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. I am honored to be mentioned in the President’s Message,Sylvia Escott-Stump.
As a RD and Food Journalist… - I look to make sense of nutrition and food controversies. Many times there are no answers, only more questions. - I utilize food and health events to teach and bring awareness to the media, consumer, educator, and health professionals - I share current news, (natural disasters, legislative policies, food recalls, industry events) so the public is aware of the impact of food and nutrition in our lives and throughout the world. - I teach and prepare special need adults on how to make food and nutrition decisions; giving them the tools to lead independent lives. - I believe an educated consumer has the knowledge to make food choices.
Thank you for the recognition. Sandra Frank, Ed.D, RD, LDN
