Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) Member Interest Group (MIG)
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is the world's largest organization of food and nutrition professionals. Member Interest Groups (MIGs) are groups of Academy members who share a common interest. As Academy organizational units, MIGs reflect the many characteristics of the Academy's membership and the public it serves.
The Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders (AAPI) MIG was first created in 2018 to bring together members from the former Chinese (CADN) and Filipino (FADAN) MIG communities, and now strives to also include a wider breadth of the Asian and Pacific Islander population. Our members are practitioners and students from diverse locations, areas of practice and educational backgrounds.
AAPI MIG empowers members to be the leaders in cultural evidence-based practices in nutrition and dietetics for people of Asian and/or Pacific Islander origin or those interested in learning more about these cultures. The community fosters networking, mentoring and support for the professional issues unique to these cultural communities. AAPI MIG is a supportive voice in the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics in promoting the diversity and inclusion of all nutrition professionals.
