Beverly W. Henry, assistant professor of nutrition, dietetics and hospitality administration, was among the national leaders of the American Dietetic Association selected to attend the ADA’s fourth Leadership Institute, held June 7 to 10 in San Diego, Calif.

Henry serves the American Dietetic Association as professional development chair for the Pediatric Nutrition Practice Group.

Participation in ADA’s Leadership Institute, an intensive certificate training program in the theory and practice of leadership in dietetics, is limited to fewer than 300 of ADA’s nearly 67,000 members throughout the country.

“This program is designed to provide ADA members with a wealth of information in the theory and practice of leadership,” said ADA President Connie Diekman, a registered dietitian. “The Leadership Institute is part of ADA’s mission of leading the future of dietetics. Attendees learn to enhance their ability to lead within ADA as well as their own places of employment, to assist other ADA members in mastering change in their environments and to advance the goals of the dietetics profession.”
