Welcome to the Northern District Virginia Dietetic Association (NDVDA)
NDVDA is one of the five state affiliates of the Virginia Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (VAND). Our membership includes Registered Dietitians, Registered Dietetic Technicians, students, and retirees of the profession in the Northern Virginia Area.
NDVDA members are leading advocates of the dietetic profession in Virginia, serving the public through promotion of optimal nutrition, health, and well-being. Many NDVDA members are involved in the community and actively promote nutrition and wellness in hospitals, schools, corporations, grocery stores and/or work in private practice. Many members also serve on advisory boards and task forces like VAND Advocacy Public Policy team and the Childhood Obesity Task Force.
