For National Nutrition Month, Women Advancing Nutrition Dietetics and Agriculture (WANDA) and Good Food Markets have teamed up to launch the WANDA fellowship to fund, mentor, and provide community nutrition & wellness field experience in the Ward 8 community to support a new generation of food sheroes.⠀
In DC’s Ward 8 community, we have a high supply of diet-related inequities and a low supply of dietitians & nutritionists of African descent.⠀
That’s why we are accepting applications by April 19, 2021, in DC’s Ward 8 community, to provide greater community nutrition access to help shoppers make healthy informed choices.⠀
Also, we are working to provide greater opportunities to support the need to increase diversity in the field of nutrition and dietetics which has 2.7% of African descent in its ranks lower than nursing and medicine. The Fellowship begins this Summer in Washington, DC. ⠀
