11/18/2021 - Registration is now open for the 2022 Nutrition and Dietetics Advocacy Summit, taking place virtually January 25-27! Join hundreds of food and nutrition professionals of all advocacy skill levels from across the country to sharpen communication skills, take a deep-dive into key policy issues that impact the health of the nation and the dietetics profession, and develop new high-level personal and professional relationships.
This summit will focus on two of the Academy's top policy and advocacy efforts: medical nutrition therapy expansion and child nutrition. Attendees will receive training on these issues during the first two days of the event to ensure they are prepared for congressional meetings on January 27, which will be conducted in small groups with a designated leader.
At checkout, attendees can add on access to the new Policy and Advocacy Certificate of Training - an 8 CPEU value - for only $10 ($89 value)! This offer is only valid with registration for the event.

Scholarship applications must be received by Wednesday, December 15. If you would like to apply for a scholarship, please hold off on registering for the summit.
