Who We Are

Welcome to the Pennsylvania Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics!  PA Academy, an affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, is the advocate of the dietetics profession serving the public through the promotion of optimal nutrition, health and well-being. We are an organization of nearly 3,700 members throughout the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

New this year is our Supporter Membership!  Dietetics professionals, who are members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and affiliate with another state, can now join the Pennsylvania Academy as a supporter member.

What We Do

Dietetics practitioners work in health care systems, home health care, foodservice, business, research and educational organizations, as well as in private practice. As vital members of medical teams in hospitals, long-term care facilities and health maintenance organizations, we provide medical nutrition therapy — using specific nutrition services to treat chronic conditions, illnesses or injuries. Community-based dietetics practitioners provide health promotion, disease prevention and wellness services.
