Input Needed on Wellness and Prevention for House of Delegates Meeting

DCMAND’s representative to the Academy’s House of Delegates wants to hear from you! Please fill out this quick survey to say what wellness and prevention means to you and what RDN’s and NDTR’s need to do in order to have an active role in this space. 

On October 14-15, the House will meet to discuss our profession’s role in wellness and prevention. Through this meeting, the House will seek to identify opportunities for credentialed nutrition professionals in wellness and prevention programs and services; determine the skills and strengths needed for this work; and establish action steps that will enable members and the Academy to take advantage of these opportunities.

The survey provides space for additional comments, but if you would like to talk directly to DCMAND’s Delegate, please contact Carolyn Wait at cewait.10@gmail.com.

Action Alert – Please Take A Minute to Respond

Registered dietitian nutritionists play a critical role in addressing malnutrition, let’s be sure our policy makers hear our united voice!  Please send your members of Congress email letters today telling them to support the Academy’s proposed malnutrition electronic clinical quality measures. These measures would hold health care facilities accountable for screening patients for malnutrition, documenting the diagnosis of malnutrition, ensuring a nutrition assessment is completed, and finally, developing a nutrition care plan.

Now is the time for Medicare recipients to have the quality care and nutrition interventions that can improve health and reduce hospital readmissions – don’t you agree?

Click here to take action. It takes only a few minutes!  It is urgent that your U.S. Senators and Representative hear from you. Please take action today.
