2021 Tennessee Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Hill Day


TAND Annual Hill Week 2021

  • If you would like to participate in Hill Week, please complete THIS FORM so we can begin planning for attendees and appointments.  DEADLINE = February 9, 2021.
  • Mark your calendars for Monday, February 22, 2021 at 10:00am CST / 11:00am EST for our Virtual Annual Hill Day Kick-Off!  CLICK HERE to REGISTER!

Because these events will be virtually hosted, there will be no charge for the events related to Hill Day this year.  However, we would not be successful without the support, guidance, and materials from the Academy and their Advocacy Leadership.  Therefore, I’d like to encourage you to consider donating to Academy’s Political Action Committee (ANDPAC).  If you are not familiar with ANDPAC and the vital role of this branch of the Academy, please CLICK HERE to learn more and provide a small donation as a token of our appreciation for their leadership and support!  Thank you!
