Legislative Day

SAVE THE DATE: Legislative Day 2018

Who better than RDNs and NDTRs to address the nutrition-related aspects of legislative issues in Virginia?  Without your voice there will be a gap in the legislators’ knowledge about food, nutrition, and health.  Join fellow nutrition professionals and let your voice be heard on February 21, 2018, in Richmond, VA.  Details and registration information coming soon!

Celebrating Success at Legislative Day 2017!

Thank you to all of the VAND members from across the Commonwealth who traveled to Richmond to advocate on behalf of the organization and the profession!  We were thrilled to welcome First Lady of the Commonwealth, Dorothy McAuliffe, who has made child hunger and nutrition her platform during her tenure as First Lady.  We were also joined by fellow dietitian, and soon-to-be VAND member, Sandy Curwood, PhD, RDN, who is new in her role as Director of the Office of School Nutrition Programs in the Virginia Department of Education.  We look forward to another successful Legislative Day next year!
