Academy Media Coverage

The Academy's Public Relations Team works with the news media to raise public awareness of the Academy, the important contributions of Academy members, scientific research published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and the importance of healthful nutrition for everyone.

One of the Academy's most-effective outreach programs is its national network of media-savvy experts — your volunteer media spokespeople. In thousands of interviews per year, spokespeople take a positive approach to promoting the Academy and the relationships between good health and diet, communicating messages that reflect solid science and research.
