South Carolina Policy Day

Involvement in public policy is vital to the health of our profession, and it affects every dietitian in our state!

The purpose of policy 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.

Each year the SCAND Public Policy Panel plans a day for members to interact with their legislators and learn more about public policy. In the past we have called it ‘Legislative Day’, ‘Advocacy Day’, and most recently ‘Policy Day’. Typically we offer informative presentations that will help you get comfortable with the basics of public policy, licensure updates, and the importance of reporting harm. We generally go to the statehouse and informally call out members to introduce ourselves, our profession, and let our state senators and representatives know how we can help them!
