Welcome to the Chinese Americans in Dietetics and Nutrition (CADN)! It is a great honor to have
the opportunity to serve as the 2016-2017 Chair. I would like to express my gratitude to the prior
chairs and executive committee members for their dedication and service to the CADN.
This year, I am fortunate to have a group of committed and enthusiastic executive committee
members, area coordinators and am confident we will continue to meet the mission of the CADN.
CADN will continue to work diligently to improve members experience by providing continuing
education opportunities, professional networking and student mentorship.
One of the goals of the CADN is to promote scientific research, literature publication, and
presentations of topics that are related to Chinese Americans in dietetics. Your executive committee
members and I welcome new ideas; any suggestions to enhance membership experience and promote
the vision of the CADN are appreciated.
I encourage you to visit the CADN website www.eatrightcadn.org for membership updates,
events, and current news. As a member of CADN, you can log in the website with your Academy in
Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) username and password.
FNCE 2016 is approaching! A booth representing CADN will be at FNCE in Boston this year. A
membership meeting will be held at the conference. We desire to sponsor a spotlight session at
FNCE. Please contact me if you are interested in sharing your accomplishments or expertise with
CADN. Details about the meeting will be communicated in an upcoming email.
Thank you for your active participation and support for the CADN!
Cynthia Wong, RD, CSP, CDN
Chair, CADN 2016-2017
