Your Role as an Advocate

Advocacy Day 2019

Advocating for the nutrition profession is imperative to our success. Serving as a Grassroots Advocate can reap these many rewards, plus so much more.
  • Capture the attention of elected officials so they listen to our concerns on issues of importance.
  • Raise the level of awareness about causes and matters at all legislative levels.
  • Harness thoughts and ideas of members to help create change within public policy.
  • Use your knowledge, insights and experiences to educate legislators about important areas of the nutrition profession, i.e., healthcare coverage, food access and licensure.
  • Make a difference in our state and nation’s health and nutrition policy.
