Academy Invites Member Input on Dietary Guidelines Scientific Report

07/17/2020 - With the release of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee's Scientific Report—which includes the recognition that an inclusive 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans must be informed by rigorous, scientific evidence that represents all Americans—the Academy held a listening session to share details of the Academy's review and comment submission process. In addition, a survey has been posted for members to contribute their comments and input on the Dietary Guidelines Committee scientific report.

Members, DPGs and MIGs are encouraged to review the report and submit feedback, which the Academy will use to develop comments during the response phases of the Dietary Guidelines process.

Now that the Scientific Report has been released, the Academy's role in the food4Health Alliance has concluded and the Academy is enhancing its focus on further engaging the expertise of RDNs and Academy members during the response phase of the Dietary Guidelines process.
