Message from the President

Welcome to the New Jersey Dietetic Association

Welcome to the New Jersey Dietetic Association (NJDA) website. We are an affiliate of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the nation's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals.

New Jersey's Registered Dietitians (RDs) and Dietetic Technicians, Registered (DTRs) are committed to helping New Jersey citizens reach their health and nutrition goals.  We work throughout the state to inform the public about good nutrition, help consumers make healthy food and physical activity choices to promote good health, and assist patients and their providers to improve health conditions.
