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 expert!
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 promoting and maintaining 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 you to use the resources provided by the Academy to ensure that your elected officials in Washington, D.C. know your views as both a constituent and nutrition and dietetics professional. Your engagement is extremely important to the success of our agenda — and there are numerous ways to get involved.
Academy members can take action by sending an electronic letter to their representatives or senators to express their support or opposition for bills that impact our profession and the health and nutrition of Americans. Action alerts allow us to bring our issues to the attention of members of Congress, and raise awareness about and add legitimacy to a particular priority issue.
