The Mid-East District Dietetic Association (MEDDA) is comprised of 5 counties including Black Hawk, Butler, Tama, Bremer, Grundy County. Our association has been quiet in the last few years, but we have recently decided to start it back up again. We plan to meet 3-4 times per year and we have had two meetings this year.
Membership is free to those who are a member of the Iowa Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. A local chef did a healthy cooking demonstration for the group at our last meeting. We learned about cooking techniques and had fun! We plan to do a potluck and provide CEUs with discussion in our next meetings.
Our meetings are very casual, we plan to follow proper Parliamentary Procedure and are voting for new leadership next meeting. We have been trying to cultivate more interest and our meetings have been primarily a networking format.
