Thank you to all of those who have submitted proposals to speak at the 90th Annual Meeting and Expo, our first virtual event.  The Review Committee has enjoyed evaluating each impressive submission that has been received so far this year.  Hosting a virtual event has allowed us to expand the amount of sessions we can offer as we strive to provide education that will suit our diverse membership.

While reviewing, the committee recognized that there is a gap in some educational materials and we are emailing to day to request the following session topics.  We seek to provide a well-rounded educational program to all attendees.  If you or someone you know would be an innovative and engaging speaker on the following topics, please fill out a presentation submission form today.  


  • Integrative and Functional Medicine
  • Renal 
  • Hypertension/Heart Disease
  • Obesity (Child & Adult)
  • Diversity in Dietetics

A note to our NYSAND Community, our Sponsors and our Speakers: 

The New York State Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics is excited to announce that the 2021 Annual Meeting & Expo will be a 100 percent virtual event.  Originally scheduled to take place in person at the Gideon Putnam Resort & Spa in Saratoga Springs, NY, the Annual Meeting & Expo Committee and NYSAND Leadership have looked to all options and decided to put all efforts into planning an all virtual event due to ongoing concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic.

The dates of the Annual Meeting & Expo will extend the experience from a high-impact 24-hour in person event to a more manageable 3-day virtual event taking place April 15-17, 2021. The AME Committee and NYSAND Staff are in the process of adapting the full schedule of educational programming, expo hours, and networking events into a program that will showcase all the benefits of attending AME, but without the uncertainty and risk that an in-person event currently presents.

Thank you,

The NYSAND Annual Meeting & Expo Chairs & Committee
