Turning Good Health into Reality

Who better than RDNs and NDTRs to address the nutrition-related aspects of legislative issues?  We are the food and nutrition experts, and without your voice there will be a gap in the legislators’ knowledge about food, nutrition, and health.  Getting involved in public policy is a rewarding experience, and you will have the opportunity to make an impact on nutrition-related policies.  Some easy ways to get involved are to participate in action alerts, meet with your legislators, and be on the lookout for additional public policy opportunities and events with VAND.  Join us and enjoy seeing the difference your unique expertise will make for Virginians!
