If food, nutrition and dietetics are part of your profession, then policy should be your passion.
The Missouri State Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics members are experts in food, nutrition, and health working on a broad range of issues to advance the nutritional status of people in our state. There are many ways by which Missouri Academy’s 1300 dietetics professionals are affected by public policy - and many opportunities to participate in the legislative process, both here in Missouri and in Washington, DC.
What’s Going On?
The Public Policy Panel keeps track of and plans activities around current state legislation and federal legislation.
