Nutrition's Legislative Landscape

In the last two years monopolistic, dietetics licensing laws have been proposed by the ADA. Who is funding this effort? Large corporate sponsors of the ADA have a vested interest in seeing that only the ADA can talk about nutrition, but will it benefit our health?

Please join us on Tuesday October 2nd, 2012 at 4pm pacific as we host Judy Stone, CN, MSW for a webinar entitled "Nutrition's Legislative Landscape: How Licensing Laws Affect Practitioners and What You Need to Know."

You will come away with:
• an understanding of the threat, and of how these types of laws can affect your right to practice
• knowledge of how you can act to protect your right to practice
• a connection to a building national movement to promote nutrition and nutrition practitioners

Judy Stone, CN, MSW (practitioner, legislative advocate) has been working as part of a national coalition of individuals and organizations who are active in blocking monopolistic licensure laws and lobbying for fair regulations that serve the profession and the public. Last year this coalition was active in blocking monopolistic laws in ten states. 

Judy is the Executive Director of Michigan Nutrition Association (www.MichiganNutritonAssociation.org) and since May has been the Legislative Policy Director for the Certification Board of Nutrition Specialists (www.cbns.org).  She is also a functional nutritionist in private practice in Ann Arbor, MI, and the author of "Take Two Apples and Call Me in the Morning: a practical guide to using the power of food to change your life."
