South Carolina Legislative Day
Involvement in public policy is vital to the health of our profession, and it affects every dietitian in our state!
The purpose of legislative day is to educate our members (whether you are a beginner or an expert) about nutrition policy, and how you can affect change! More importantly, we take one day every year to reach out to our legislators and let them know about the important role that dietitians play and why we are good to know!
Consider taking this day to network with other RDs, get continuing education credit, and meet the people making decisions in our state that impact your profession.
Legislative Day typically starts with informative presentations that will help you get comfortable with the basics of public policy, licensure updates, and the importance of reporting harm.
