Welcome to the new Southeast Region homepage!
A new restructuring of the Texas Academy has occurred and we have moved from districts to regions.

Call for speakers and Area Liaisons

Help advocate for the health of Texans and our profession!
We monitor legislative activities in our area for all dietitians. Help us help you! Give to the Texas Academy PAC! You can contribute online with a one time contribution or a monthly recurring contribution. If you would rather send a check please make payable to Texas Academy PAC and send to 6060 N. Central Expressway, Ste 500, Dallas, TX, 75602. No amount is too small! Please contact selegislative@eatrighttexas.org with questions or if you would like to help!

Awards:

Do you know someone in the Southeast Region who deserves recognition for doing exemplary work in food and nutrition? Maybe he or she will be named our next Distinguished Dietitian, Distinguished Scientist, Recognized Young Dietitian, Recognized Dietetic Technician, or Emerging Dietetic Leader. There are also awards for Outstanding Preceptors, Educators and Media representatives. Perhaps you know someone who’s not a dietitian, and has contributed significantly to the advancement of nutrition and dietetics in Texas. The Bluebonnet award is waiting to be given to this outstanding individual.

The Texas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics needs your help to identify nominees for these distinctions. Don’t be shy; you can even nominate yourself. More information is available here: https://www.eatrighttexas.org/members/tand-awards/ . Marie Whelen, Southeast Region Awards/Scholarships Coordinator is available to answer your questions and help with applications. Please send her your questions and nominations at SEAwards_scholarship@eatrighttexas.org by October 25, 2017. Completed applications will be due by Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 11:59pm, so put on your thinking cap and nominate today!

Scholarships:

Attention, all students: in 2016, the Texas Academy Foundation awarded 24 scholarships totaling $19,900! Over the past thirty years we have awarded over 600 scholarships and more than $449,066 in scholarship awards to deserving Texas dietetic students. The Texas Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Foundation is currently accepting scholarship applications now until December 1, 2017 for our 2017-2018 scholarships.

Details about this and all Foundation scholarships can be found on our website, http://tandfscholarships.org/. Applicants must complete the scholarship application and other required materials by the December 1st deadline.

Of special note this year, we are welcoming scholarship applications even from students who will graduate in December/Fall semester. In the past students had to be enrolled in both the fall and spring semester but with this newest change we welcome students to apply for a scholarship and if they should receive it then the funds will all be applied to the fall semester tuition and fees.

Any Texas dietetic student can apply for a scholarship. If they should match with a dietetic internship in another state, they are still eligible to receive the scholarship since they were living in Texas at the time of the application, and the funds will be sent to their matched site.
