We are a dynamic group of individuals, with varied areas of expertise in the field of nutrition, health, and wellness. Our group is made up of Registered Dietitians, Dietetic Technicians Registered, Retired Dietitians, dietetic students, and dietetic interns. We produce a quarterly newsletter, provide many opportunities for leadership, and offer our members 8 meetings yearly for the purpose of continuing education and networking.


Our Mission

The SCDA strives to empower it's members through continuing education, professional networking, and leadership development to establish them as first-line food and nutrition experts within the community. 

The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest patients in the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.
