Outstanding Preceptor Awards Winners

At the request of the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation now funds seven awards on behalf of the Nutrition and Dietetic Educators and Preceptors group and ACEND to recognize preceptors who are exemplary educators and mentors. The award recipients will receive reimbursement up to $1,000 to cover expenses to travel and attend the upcoming Food & Nutrition Conference & Expo™. The seven award recipients are recognized at the Academy Member Showcase and the NDEP Member Meetings at FNCE®.

Please be on the alert for opportunities that will be available to you to recognize and support the contribution that preceptors are making to the profession.
