National Consumer Protection Week

02/27/2019 - National Consumer Protection Week, held March 3 to 9, helps people understand their consumer rights and make well-informed decisions on health care expenditures such as nutrition services.

The Academy is dedicated to protecting consumers by maintaining existing dietetics licensure laws and enacting or strengthening laws in states that lack sufficient regulations to protect the public.

The Academy offers resources including an interactive map highlighting links to boards, statutes and roles, as well as information on the type of dietetics regulation in each state. These resources promote consumers' awareness and raise the visibility of registered dietitian nutritionists as the trusted and credible nutrition experts.
