Our two biggest events of the year:
- The Dietetic Internship Selection Workshop: October 30, 2020
This workshop is intended for students of all stages to understand how to effectively apply for a Dietetic Internship (DI). The workshop consists of an introductory lecture, a Q&A with a panel of Internship Directors, and an interview with current dietetic interns.
- The Career Development Workshop: May 3, 2021
The career development workshop is for students to understand how to navigate the career of dietetics and develop their specific interests in the career of dietetics. The workshop features a keynote speaker and a Q&A with a panel of dietetic specialists.
These events are widely attended by students and professionals from all around the Northeast. In addition to these annual events, we also host a variety of other activities throughout the year, such as having guest speakers and virtually gathering for social events.
Other upcoming events this year:

These nights will spotlight different specialties in dietetics and specific skill sets that will be both informative and beneficial to students as they pursue a career in nutrition and dietetics. They will be about 1-hour long and take place every 1-2 months. Follow our social media to find out when the next specialty night is!
- National Nutrition Month: March, 2021
Each year the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics picks on a theme for National Nutrition Month. During this month, we will have educational and fundraising events focused around this theme. All member participation is welcome. More information will be forthcoming as National Nutrition Month approaches, and the theme is released!
Due to the new structure of all MSDA events, ALL events will be recorded and shared on the website. If you are unable to attend events, this is a great alternative to still receive information. Stay up to date with our upcoming events by following us on social media!
