The flexibility and safety the virtual format provided in 2021 resulted in fantastic engagement. It is our goal again this year to ensure every Missouri Legislator hears from a dietetics professional (RD/RDN, DTR/NDTR, Student/Intern). This is a week to connect with legislators over the phone, on video calls, through email, and/or on social media. This connection is vital to educate and reinforce the importance of our profession.

Timeline of Events:

  • Monday, March 21: Attend a virtual webinar @ 4:00-4:30 PM CST with our MOAND policy consultant, Public Policy Panel Member Elect, and State Policy Representative to learn best practices for speaking with legislators. You'll also learn about bills we are actively tracking and the current environment of this legislative session. This webinar will be recorded for anyone who cannot attend live. We encourage all students, interns, RDNs, and DTRs to attend.
  • Tuesday-Thursday, March 22-24: In your own free time, reach out to your assigned legislators, utilizing the tips we covered March 21 and the MOAND virtual policy tool kit. Please track your outreach and progress on the MOAND Google Document.
  • Friday, March 25: MOAND will send a thank you to all Missouri legislators.
  • ALL WEEK: Engage with MOAND on social media using the hashtag #MOANDLegWeek2022 and #MOLeg
