As an organization, we are only as strong as our members. CPSDA’s mission is to create leaders who elevate the profession of sports nutrition through ethical, science-based, cutting-edge care. Our core values include respect, integrity, excellence, community, and growth-mindset. These values can only be brought to life through a membership who is ethical, inclusive, and acting as leaders not only in their organizations, but in their communities.
The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (D.E.I.) Committee has established the following as immediate action items
- Establish criteria for the previously-announced BIPOC Dietetic Internship Scholarship application
- Conduct market research to identify the current average tuition for a dietetic internship
- Determine which historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) have dietetic internship programs
As a member organization of The Joint Commission on Sports Medicine and Science, CPSDA, along with a number of other Joint Commission members, developed this statement entitled: “Moving Forward: A Consensus Statement on Health, Equity, Inclusion, and Progress". The Joint Commission on Sports Medicine and Science plays an exceptional role in convening organizations. Many of its member organizations have developed statements that address the urgent health, economic, and justice issues of today. While the Joint Commission itself cannot issue such statements, it provides a tremendous platform for individual organizations to collaborate on initiatives such as this. The Collective Consensus Statement was officially released on Friday, August 28, 2020, the 57th Anniversary of the March on Washington and the “I Have A Dream" speech. The statement is dedicated to the memory, life, and legacy of Congressman John Lewis and to other such courageous leaders throughout time.
