RESOLUTION

    Recognizing the 100th anniversary of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the largest organization of food and nutrition professionals in the world.

    Whereas, on October 20, 1917, dietitians met in Cleveland, Ohio, to identify ways in which food and nutrition professionals could help the United States Government conserve food and improve public health and nutrition during World War I;

    Whereas the foundational meeting on October 20, 1917, led to the creation of the American Dietetics Association, now known as the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (referred to in this preamble as the “Academy”);

    Whereas, since the inception of the Academy, the Academy has grown from a charter membership of 58 individuals to the largest organization of food and nutrition professionals in the world, with a membership as of January 2017 of more than 75,000 individuals;

    Whereas the Academy is comprised of a diverse group of registered dietitian nutritionists and technicians, scientists, clinicians, educators, students, and other food and nutrition practitioners; and

    Whereas, through evidence-based research and education, members of the Academy play an important role in shaping the food choices and nutrition of the people of the United States: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved, That the Senate—

(1) commemorates October 20, 2017, as the 100th anniversary of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics; and

(2) applauds the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics for its past, present, and future efforts to champion the principles established by its dietitian predecessors more than 100 years ago—

(A) to promote food and nutrition professionals; and

(B) to improve the health and wellness of all people of the United States through research, education, and advocacy.
