Legislation 101

Each NYSAND member makes a difference when speaking up for increased investments in food and nutrition research.  As the experts, you can explain how the Dietary Guidelines for Americans can be made more valuable.  And you can have an impact in overall public health by urging a better integration of the Dietary Guidelines in public programs and individual decisions.

Lawmakers want to hear from their constituents and they need to hear from experts in food, nutrition and health. Become a champion for nutrition and help to effectively advance nutrition care and services. Advocate and make your voice and the voice of your colleagues heard!
