I look forward to seeing our area dietitian nutritionists, dietetic technicians, dietetic students, and retired dietitians out in great numbers for this first meeting!! In the meantime, remember to renew your membership with the Academy and STAND so that you may stay up-to-date with current legislative activities. (You may also renew your STAND membership at the meeting.)
If you are a current member of the Academy, then you likely are aware, but right now in the State of Texas, the dietitian licensure is at risk for being eliminated. Your Academy membership pays for the important work in the legislature that fights for maintaining our licensure and standing in the local and national field as the ‘Nutrition Experts’.
If you get an action alert from AND, TAND, or STAND, please don’t delete – ACT!! We all must work together.
See you at the Kick-off!
Anna Macnak, RDN, LD
