Abstract

Nutrition professional societies select and address US public policy issues from their various perspectives. This article provides a summary of the public policy advocacy alignment with organizational goals, description of the most recent public policy priorities, and the actual issues addressed in the 18-month period from January 2013 to June 2014. Every nutrition professional must determine if there are public policy issues of importance to them and whether their perspective is being addressed. If your issues are not being addressed, then it is time for you to determine if it is important enough for you be become involved.
