We hope that you had a great summer and are headed into a productive Fall season. This will certainly be a busy and engaging time for our DPG! As members of the Clinical Nutrition Management DPG, our mission is to empower and support leaders to advance nutrition practices in health care. Every day, we are responsible for developing and implementing nutrition programs that keep pace with and lead the ever-changing health care environment. One way you can support this mission is to visit the Academy’s Action Center and complete the Action Alerts to advocate with our congressional leaders for sound nutrition policy.
