Take Action

Amplify the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics' voice for better food, nutrition and health policies. Learn how to speak effectively on behalf of public health and reformed health care policies and help build recognition that you are the food and nutrition experts!

Support for nutrition is not only good public policy, it is good politics. Members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics have the ability and responsibility to urge consumers and lawmakers to learn about the positive role nutrition plays in healthy lifestyles. Nutrition also plays an effective role in disease management and treatment. For both individuals and society, the benefits of eating right and exercising include improved qualities of life and lower health-care costs.

We urge to you use the resources provided by the Academy to ensure that your elected officials in Washington, D.C. know your views as both voters and nutritional and food professionals. Your activism is extremely important to the success of our agenda — and there are numerous ways to get involved.

  • Send your legislator a fax

  • Call an elected official directly
  • Educate others by spreading the word about important issues
