Why should YOU become a member?
The Student Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics at the University of Memphis provides innumerable opportunities in the city of Memphis, on the University's campus, and beyond in order to impact people's lives for the better. Membership through the University of Memphis is only $10 per year. You will be invited to monthly meetings where dietitians in our community will share insight to their career path and you will be able to network with fellow students. The best way to become a member is to email our President (see SAND Officers under the "About" tab). You do not want to miss the exciting things taking place this year!
Opportunities in our City
The more time spent in the city of Memphis, the more it captures your heart. Through the Dietetics program at the University of Memphis, we desire to impact and love on our city.
One of the Dietetics program's biggest opportunities is Camp CHEF, where we cultivate healthy eaters for the future. Camp CHEF is a two week summer camp that provides children with the knowledge of how to prepare and cook food as well as the nutritional value in the food. SAND members can use their knowledge to assist these children during this summer event.
Opportunities on Campus
There is no better way than to be able to give back to our University than to provide dietetic resources for our fellow students. We are able to apply the things we learn in the classroom to be able to benefit others around us at the University of Memphis.
SAND has been involved with many events, including the SAND Fun Run to raise money for Rise Against Hunger, and opportunities especially during Nutrition Month of March to provide UofM students with the healthy resources that are needed.
Opportunities to Change Lives
Through SAND, opportunities are made available for YOU to make a drastic change in other peoples lives. The University of Memphis is strategically located so that we can have the best experiences and opportunities for you, like connecting with St. Jude dietitians, working with the American Diabetes Association, networking with local dietitians about their private practices. The opportunities are endless, and we do not want you to miss out!
