Cast your vote in our national election and help our affiliate win a FREE registration to attend the Academy’s Food and Nutrition Expo 2016, which will be held in Boston, Massachusetts. This is awarded to the affiliate with the highest percentage of its members voting in the national election by affiliate size. South Dakota won its category 2 years ago and last year came so close; let’s really push to win that opportunity for one of our dietitians, it could be YOU that makes all the difference!

The new social media chair, Lizzie Kuckuk, will be posting on twitter @eatrightsd, Instagram @eatrightsouthdakota and Facebook. If anyone has nutrition news or events from around the state and country, please let me know via phone or e-mail so I can update the social media pages. I am new to South Dakota, so any help getting the pages more involved is much appreciated! :)
