In other fields, you say, “You’ve arrived.” But in dietetics, we say, “You’ve emerged.” On April 25th, Jump with Jill creator, Jill Jayne, was honored with the “Emerging Dietetic Leader” award in Bethlehem, PA at the Pennsylvania Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (PAND) Annual Meeting. PAND was honored to host the President of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND), Glenna McCollum. The award recognizes the activities and competence of dietitians regardless of their age, who have made distinctive contributions early in their career to the Academy.
Here at Jump with Jill, we work very hard making effective and fun nutrition education for kids. It was an honor to be recognized by peers for elevating the dietetic credential. Thanks to the awards committee for completing necessary, time-consuming paperwork to make this award a reality!
