East Carolina University professor Sylvia A. Escott-Stump began her one-year term Wednesday as the 2011-12 president of the American Dietetic Association. She has served as president-elect since June 2010.
“The American Dietetic Association is a respected organization with an ambitious strategic plan. Acting together, we have accomplished much. Our potential to be center stage in policy debates and the provision of health care in our country has never been greater,” Escott-Stump said.
“As an ADA member for more than 35 years, it is an honor to serve the association and its nearly 72,000 members. We are facing an era of health reform. With increased public awareness of the role of nutrition in disease prevention and helping people live longer, healthier lives, now is an amazing time to be a registered dietitian and an ADA member. Sincerely, this profession brings tremendous personal and professional rewards,” she said.
