Academy Strategic Plan
The purpose of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Strategic Plan is to outline the organization's vision, mission, principles, focus areas, goals, and strategies. The vision of the Academy is to create a world where everyone thrives through the transformative power of food and nutrition. Their mission is to accelerate improvements in global health and well-being through food and nutrition.
The principles of the Academy emphasize the importance of amplifying the contribution and value of diverse nutrition and dietetics practitioners, positioning registered dietitian nutritionists as experts in the field, expanding workforce demand and capacity, fostering innovation and discovery through research, professional development, technology, and practice, collaborating with stakeholders to solve food and nutrition challenges, and having a global impact in eliminating all forms of malnutrition.
To achieve their vision and mission, the Academy focuses on four key areas: Well-Being and Prevention, Nutrition Care and Health Systems, Nutrition Security and Food Safety, and Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and Access. These focus areas help prioritize and direct resources towards impact goals, which are specific targets for progress. The strategies outlined in the plan describe how the Academy will work towards achieving these impact goals.
