Student Dietetic Association


The Student Dietetic Association (SDA) of Florida State University is a professional student organization that exists to provide opportunities of networking between faculty, staff, local professionals, and the dietetic and health-focused student body. Our main focus is to ensure that your transition from student to graduate to intern or graduate school is as smooth as possible. We coordinate events such as 5K runs, feeding the homeless, community projects with Tallahassee Dietetic Association, and guests speakers at each monthly meeting to give you an overall look into what dietetics is all about.
