Each year, our members have many opportunities to be recognized at the state and local levels. ADDA provides the Sally Fisher RD Award and the Jeanne B. Lee Outstanding Dietetic Intern Award to distinguished members. In addition, the Georgia Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics recognizes various accomplishments at the state level.
