The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is committed to improving the nation’s health and advancing the profession of dietetics through research, education and advocacy.
Here is the Academy’s Public Policy Priorities for 2020
Advocacy is Our Professional Responsibility
In her President’s Page article in the February Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, President Linda T. Farr, RDN, CSOWM, LD, FAND, encourages all members to “take an active role in building influential relationships that will help us gain support for important issues that expand diverse access to our services, shape the public’s health and food choices, promote consumer protection and safeguard our licensure.”
