Join an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Public Policy Affinity Group
Get to know your local legislators and correspond with them about nutrition issues, especially during state legislative session (every other year).
Share your story. Talk about the importance of the work you do with family, friends, neighbors, local legislators, federal congressional members or staffers. You know the work you do best, communicate that proudly and with pride.
If dietetics is your profession, policy should be your passion!
