IAND Legislative Seminar and Advocacy Day 2015!

Licensure, legislation, and public policy impact our jobs, no matter what setting we work in. Learn how to effectively communicate with legislators to educate them about our profession and how we positively impact the health of their constituents. Share with them that we are available to be their nutrition experts and gain their support on legislation important to the dietetics profession and the nutritional health of Illinois citizens.

This year, Advocacy Day will take place on Wednesday, March 25th, 2015 from 9:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and will include morning meetings at the Illinois State Museum.
