This year the focus of the Academy’s Public Policy workshop in October 2018 was “The Role of RDNs and NDTRs in Malnutrition Prevention and Treatment”. CT Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics members met with our federal legislators in Washington to discuss the topic. We are looking to address the issue of malnutrition at the state and local level as well. Here are some current resources on Malnutrition Prevention and Treatment.
The Connecticut Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics representative and committee serve as a local resource for CT Academy members who have questions about reimbursement issues. They support coding and coverage issues on the local level by initiating or helping advance members’ coverage activities with third party payers or other decision makers. You may contact the CT Academy Reimbursement Representative by email with questions or to join the committee at Reimbursement@eatrightct.org
