IAND Legislative Seminar and Advocacy Day
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.
What is Advocacy Day?
Each Spring the Illinois Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics heads to the Capitol in Springfield where we discuss important issues with our legislators. When it comes to legislative activity every voice is important and counted. Join your fellow registered dietitians and dietetic students.
