Welcome! The Western Area Massachusetts Dietetic Association (WAMDA) promotes optimal nutrition and well being for our community, its people, and nutrition professionals.
After much consideration and discussion among the board of directors, WAMDA has decided to change our 29th Annual 5K Walk/Run to a fully virtual event. The health and safety of our participants and volunteers is our top concern and with COVID-19 cases climbing we do not feel an in-person event is the best idea at this time. Regardless, we still hope to match, if not beat last year's funds raised for the Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. Please consider joining us to run from wherever you are to support our Western Mass neighbors in need! Visit the events page to learn more.
The MAND Public Policy Panel has been very active in promoting legislation on the state and national levels that supports optimal nutrition and wellness for all citizens. Read on to see how two of our members are lending their voices!
