Welcome! The Western Area Massachusetts Dietetic Association (WAMDA) promotes optimal nutrition and well being for our community, its people, and nutrition professionals.

Lisa Wilby is the 2015 Dietitian Award Recipient!!

Lisa Wilby has gone above and beyond serving on the WAMDA board as the Road Race Co-Chair and the Road Race Sponsorship Coordinator for the past 4 years. Each year, Lisa seeks and obtains new sponsorship and exceeds the previous year’s donations for the Foodbank of Western Mass. Prior to Lisa’s involvement with the road race, she served as the public relations board member in 2008 and 2009. In her career, Lisa guides bariatric patients before and after surgery with care and attention to her patient’s current state of health. She also counsels in the community where she lives and mentors students from the UMass Dietetic Internship. Thank you Lisa for your dedication to WAMDA, your patients and the fight against hunger.

2015 Scholarship Award Recipients

We would like to congratulate the 2015 recipients of the WAMDA scholarship. The award recipients were chosen on a basis of academic performance, references, and personal statement. We had a number of qualified applicants and thank all of those that took the time to apply. We hope to see all of them involved in WAMDA in the future.
Congratulations to Eliza Mellion and Emily Boudreau, who attended our Annual Dinner Meeting on 5/12/15 to accept their $500 awards!
