For DCMAND, relationships with sponsors are not about promoting their products or services, but rather about creating nutrition messages that people can understand and act upon to improve their health and that of their families. DCMAND considers our vision and mission in all decisions, including whether to enter into a relationship with an outside company and/or organization.

DCMAND is committed to providing qualified speakers and sponsoring seminars on food and nutrition issues for professional and community groups; conducting conferences to promote continuing education of its membership and allied health professionals; functioning as a reliable nutrition information resource for the public.
