The New Hampshire Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics

The New Hampshire Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (NHAND) is a professional association and the state affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. NHAND provides education programs for members and the public. NHAND is also involved with nutrition-related legislative issues that impact registered dietitians and the public.

To become a member of NHAND, you must be a current member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and choose New Hampshire as your state affiliate.

Professional Development & Networking

NHAND is focused on helping you take your career where you want it to go. Whether it's to the next level or switching to another practice area of dietetics, we can help. 

In addition to helping you access the many resources the Academy provides to members, networking with your New Hampshire with colleagues thru NHAND provides you with a valuable resource. 

We hold a variety of events to provide you with opportunities to learn and obtain continuing education credits (CEUs). Future events will be announced on our Professional Development page, News page, on our Facebook page, and in emails sent to members.

If you are interested in helping with these events, sponsoring them, or presenting at please contact us.
