Vision

Optimizing the health of the people of Orange County through food and nutrition.

Mission

Empowering members of CAND-Orange District to be food and nutrition leaders.

Join the Orange District Dietetic Association!

As an active member of Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) and California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (CAND), you are invited to join CAND-Orange District (OD). We are your local dietetic association. Each year we reach out to professionals like you as part of our Membership Campaign to request and encourage your support in continuing to provide you and other dietetics professionals with opportunities to network and develop knowledge and expertise. CAND-Orange District is a non-profit organization and we depend on your membership and contributions since we do not receive any funds from either state or national organizations.

Many great dietetic professionals generously donate their time and talent to CAND-OD, making this a dynamic and successful organization. Thank you to all the professionals who volunteer time to CAND-OD.

The more members we have, the greater our impact will be on the community. It is by working together that we can support professional RDs and DTRs while enhancing the reputation of dietetic professionals as nutrition experts.
