Welcome to the

New Orleans Academy of

Nutrition and Dietetics!

President's Corner

 

 

Hello! My name is Devin Brittain and I’m honored to be this year’s NOAND President. I have been a Registered Dietitian and Licensed Dietitian Nutritionist for 5 years and have
been fortunate to have served as a NOAND board member for all these years. My past
positions include National Nutrition Month Coordinator, Public Relations and Social
Media, Treasurer, and President-Elect.

 

Born and raised in California, I obtained my Bachelor's of Science in Food and
Nutritional Sciences with an emphasis in Dietetics and Food Administration from
California State University, Fresno. I then moved to Louisiana and completed my
Dietetic Internship at Tulane’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine. I’ve been
in the Oncology Nutrition field for 5 years. Currently, you can find me at University
Medical Center in their Outpatient Cancer Center helping patients through their
oncology treatments and co-facilitating the operations for our hospital-based therapeutic
food pantry. I love being able to combine aspects of clinical and community nutrition.

 

The Dietetics field is beautiful and diverse. My hope is that NOAND is at the forefront for
creating a safe space for learning from each other and that we continue to be a
resource and tool for connection, community, and advocacy regarding all things nutrition
and dietetics.


Our goal for the organization this year is to provide both in-person and virtual CEU
meetings, journal clubs, and volunteering and networking opportunities. We will offer a variety of CEU topics including clinical, community, and more! Your elected board members are full of great new ideas and please stay tuned for updates on our website, in your inbox, or on our social media pages! Our success has you at the core!

 

Please do not hesitate to reach out via email at eatrightneworleans@gmail.com about
speaking opportunities, sponsoring a meeting, job searches, student/dietetic intern
inquiries, community events, job postings, etc.

 

We are looking forward to a great year!
 

Healthy Wishes,
Devin Brittain, RD, LDN
