About

Behavioral Health Nutrition (BHN) is a Dietetic Practice Group of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Our mission is to provide resources and support which empower BHN members to excel in the areas of addictions, eating disorders, intellectual & developmental disabilities, and mental health. Within those specialties, we strive to optimize the physical and cognitive health of those we serve through nutrition education and behavioral health counseling.

This is our student blog, BHN Students, which was created for our students by our students. All of our articles are are original contributions by BHN student members, and we are very proud of that! We work hard to give our students plenty of opportunity to learn, grow, share, and volunteer.
