Become Passionate about Public Policy for Your Profession!
September 19 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm UTC+0
“If Dietetics is Your Profession, Public Policy Should be your Passion”, is the slogan of the Academy’s Public Policy Workshop in Washington D.C. That event didn’t happen this year, so we’re bringing the information to our region, just in time for the election! Our lineup of speakers include Heidi Kiehl and Bailey Weiner, who will discuss why Public Policy–both at the State and National level– is vital to continue our profession. Also one of the Texas delegates to the Academy, Karen Geismar, will update us on what the Academy does for its members and how she represents the needs of Texas members there. Learn how to advocate for your profession and yourself in this workshop!
Karen Geismar MS, RDN Internship Director Texas A & M University and Academy Delegate; Bailey Weiner, Texas Academy Public Policy Co-Coordinator, Heidi Kiehl, State Policy Representative.
