Dietetic interns visit legislators

Advocacy 2

Interns with Senator Dave Hansen

UW-Green Bay Dietetic Internship, in conjunction with the School Nutrition Association and Wisconsin Dietetic Association, combined efforts and met with legislators for both school breakfast funding and the continuation of the certification of registered dietitians in Wisconsin at the state capitol on Wednesday, March 7. The 18 dietetic interns and Wisconsin nutrition professionals learned about how to advocate for our programs and then went into legislative meetings in the capital speaking to senators and staffers on important topics. Interns developed the ability to speak passionately about a subject, voice their opinions effectively.
