IAAND Diversity Project

The International Affiliate of Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics been awarded a Diversity grant from the Academy Diversity Committee. Dr Ahlam El Shikieri is spearheading the effort and has a short term opportunity for a graduate student or IAAND member to assist in creating the educational materials. The entire project has to be completed no later than December 1 2021. We would like to offer this opportunity to IAAND members first with preference given to IAAND student members.

We have a short term opportunity for one or more graduate students or IAAND members with a very small budget ($400 total for educational material development). We are looking for a graduate student or member who might be interested in creating content for an on-line education modules to be translated into the Arabic language and provided in You-Tube video modules. We will provide resources from Academy HOD and Diversity Committees that need to be transformed into mostly graphic content that can be paired with music and other features as educational modules for dietitians in Arabic speaking countries. The skills needed include the ability to create the graphic content and YouTube videos. Arabic speaker is an asset. For brief information about the project, please visit:

If you are interested, can you please send a one page bio and resume and I will talk with you about the project. The email is:
We hope to start in as soon as possible and have the majority of the work done by October-November timeframe.
