We are excited that you have chosen to join or renew your membership with the Cultures of Gender and Age (COGA) Member Interest Group (MIG) of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. You will find our group is one of likeminded members who embrace diversity and respect and celebrate everyone’s uniqueness.

COGA leadership is committed to offering our members an inclusive community of networking and of promoting the exchange of perspectives across gender, age and lived experiences. To maximize this membership experience, we urge you to stay up to date and informed of the COGA happenings.  We’ll make that easy for you via our website, member e-blasts and social media presence on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Be sure to complete all the fields in your Member Profile (this can be accessed from the login dropdown menu) as this will enhance our Membership Directory. You can find/connect with another COGA colleagues through our directory.

Your COGA membership will bring opportunities for professional development with CPEUs from both live and recorded webinars and scholarships for the Academy’s online certificate program.  Watch for more information on regional connections which are in the planning stages. If attending FNCE®, you’ll be invited to member-only events that further champion and advocate for diversity within the Academy.

A new, but already favorite, members only benefit is the Discussion Board available on the website.  You can join a discussion, get input/feedback from fellow members and/or share your opinion on a variety of pertinent topics.  

Being proactive and fostering diversity needs leadership and commitment at many levels. Let us know of your interest in volunteering at any time by contacting COGA@eatright.org.

We truly appreciate your support and look forward to a fantastic year!
