Centennial Exhibit

In commemoration of our centennial, the Academy collaborated with the Dittrick Medical History Center, on the campus of Case Western Reserve University — in our "birthplace" of Cleveland — on a museum exhibit that vividly depicted 100 years of bringing nutrition and health to the public, in the U.S. and throughout the world.

The exhibit ran from May 1 to May 22, showcasing our history through original photographs, archives and commemorative items documenting the organization's first century and setting the stage for our next century.

Photos and videos of the exhibit will be posted to eatrightPRO.org for those who are unable to see this historic exhibit in person, as well as a display at the Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo™, in October in Chicago.
