)-- A+ Nutrition, providing personalized nutrition counseling, announced today that its principal, Diane Machcinski, is the 2010 recipient of the Dolores Nyhus Award for Outstanding Achievement in the field of dietetics. The award, given by the California Dietetic Association (CDA), was presented at the group’s annual meeting in Oakland.
“It’s such an honor to receive this award. I’m grateful to the San Diego Dietetic Association, which nominated me, and the Awards Committee, which chose me from many other worthy dietitians,” Machcinski said. “I’m passionate about my work. My life is truly enriched from the positive results my clients achieve in changing their health behaviors through Medical Nutrition Therapy. It’s my honor to serve the people of San Diego and to mentor future dietitians.”
In addition to being a registered dietician and member of the American Dietetic Association, award nominees must have worked professionally in California for at least 15 years, had a significant impact in the field of nutrition and dietetics, made a significant contribution that improved the standards of dietetic practice, given outstanding service to the professional association, and mentored nutrition professionals or students. Machcinski more than met all criteria, as reflected by the comments made in letters supporting her nomination.
Clara Baity, past CDA president, wrote: “Diane is a friend, mentor and leader to her dietetic professional colleagues. She is knowledgeable, competent, caring and successful as a person and professionally. She is ethical, visionary and supportive of others’ accomplishments. Diane is one whom I know can think outside the box.”
