There are two levels of policy and advocacy that are important for RDNs to understand and to be involved in.

Federal

The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics is committed to improving the nation's health and advancing the profession through research, education, and advocacy. Advocacy is critical to achieving the mission, vision, goals and strategies outlined in the Academy Strategic Plan.

Public policy significantly influences and forms the Academy's public image and that of the dietetics profession.

State

State governments play a vital role in creating and implementing policies that serve and protect the public. AZAND is your advocate in public policy at the state level to ensure the health and safety of the public; to make sure your voice is heard.
