ANDPAC is the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Political Action Committee — and is the only political action committee broadly focused on food, nutrition and health. It ranks among the top 35 health professional political action committees in the country. Our goal is to support pro-nutrition candidates for federal office.
ANDPAC offers Academy members the opportunity to explore many of the issues and activities involving political action and dietetics, as well as a directory of relevant links.
Another way to keep up to date with public policy is to subscribe to ‘Eat Right Weekly’ which provides members with weekly updates on public policy, continuing education, career resources, research and Foundation activities. This customizable web-based newsletter keeps Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics members up-to-date on the news and events they care about. Check out the "On the Pulse of Public Policy" section for advocacy and policy initiative information. Action alerts will continue to be sent on an as-needed basis.
If dietetics is your profession, politics is your business!
