Goals

The focus of the Muslims in Dietetics and Nutrition (MIDAN) member interest group (MIG) is to reduce health disparities in the Muslim community through four goals:

  1. To provide a forum in which food and nutrition professionals working with the Muslim community may network with one another and develop professionally.
  2. To increase diversity within the dietetics profession through promoting careers in dietetics within the Muslim community and providing a mentorship program for students and new dietetic professionals.
  3. To serve as a resource for and increase nutrition awareness within the Muslim community.
  4. To serve as a resource for and disseminate factual information to members of the public, other dietitians and healthcare professionals, organizations, and other entities desiring better understanding of Muslim dietary practices and other nutritional issues.
