Second Century
Path to Our Future

Now, more than ever, the ability to feed people and feed them well is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century.  How do we transform our practice to revolutionize nutrition and dietetics for the second century, and help meet the challenges of achieving food security and improved nutrition?

The Academy has embarked on a strategic planning process, the Second Century to fulfill the mission and vision of the profession as we move into the next 100 years and establish a bold vision for the future, The process includes input from numerous stakeholders, convening with global experts this September and developing a strategic direction that seeks to expand the influence and reach of the profession in our homes, our schools, our communities, and throughout our nation and globally.
