The Student Dietetic Association (SDA) is a student organization at The University of Mississippi.The SDA was established in 2006 as a student organization for Nutrition and Dietetics majors. It was created with the intent to promote a healthy lifestyle, career education, and volunteer experience to students.
According to the Diabetes Foundation of Mississippi, our state leads the nation in the prevalence of diabetes. Not to mention, Mississippi is also the heaviest state with 69% of our population being overweight.
As future eomployers/employees in the health care industry, it is important for us to raise awareness, and support a cause that is widespread in Mississippi. Step up to the plate, and help the work towards positive change.
Ask your friends, family, relatives, neighbors....and anyone really, to sponsor you for this great cause!
