Bayou District

BDDA supports Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics members in the Terrebonne & Lafourche parish’s while also representing other surrounding parish’s. Our association represents members who work in many different scopes of dietetic practice such as clinical nutrition, food service management, school foodservice, and university level education. We are also very supportive of our student members. BDDA conducts several fundraisers throughout the year in order to award various scholarships. These scholarships benefit dietetics student members & also aid active members in attendance of ADA events such as the annual Public Policy Workshop help in Washington D.C. Membership meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month at a location usually in Houma or Thibodaux. All business meetings are accompanied by an education program, which provides at least one credit of continuing professional education. BDDA members also participate in many health-related activities within the community.
