Olympia Area Dietetic Association


Diversity and Inclusion Committee

This committee focuses on improving and promoting diversity within the dietetics profession.  We meet quarterly to share ideas and create community, and our activities include book clubs, cultural food challenges, and attending lectures and seminars on diversity and inclusion in dietetics.  We would love to have you join us as we navigate this important topic!

Committee Leader: Vanessa Vu

Legislative Committee

This committee focuses on various legislative activities, and teaches how to advocate for policy changes and improvements at the local, state, and national level.  We have the advantage of our state capital being in our backyard and the opportunity to impact real change.  

Committee Leader: DeeDee Smith
