Events and Continuing Education

HAND members are constantly working on organizing events and offering continuing education opportunities to its membership.

The HAND Annual Spring Conference & Exhibits, is the marquee event for Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics members in Hawai‘i, drawing nearly half of its total membership. Presentations and speakers range a variety of nutrition topics and practice areas. Sponsors and vendors, often close working partners and professional associates in the community, are welcome to join in on the conference activities. Information about the conference and sponsorship are posted within available timelines.
