This year, the Society for Nutrition Education and Behavior's (SNEB) annual conference is located in our nation’s Capital. With looming cuts to important social programs, what better opportunity could there be to gather the troops and educate our elected officials on the importance of nutrition education in our country?

While we will be highlighting lawmakers in DC, the tips covered can be applied to any visits and connections with policy makers at all levels.  Don’t miss out on the important information! 

This is great for anyone who wants to share the importance of nutrition education with their elected officials. It will also help people attending the "Nutrition Educators As Advocates" pre-conference session get ready to visit their Members of Congress.
