Wanda Fellowship – Applications Period Open

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. ⠀
