The Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) impact every area of practice for Academy members. Congress is considering limiting the scope of the DGA, based on political pressures, rather than science. We need you to reach out to your Members of Congress in both the Senate and the House to let them know that this is not acceptable.
It is urgent that your members of Congress hear from you! Congress will be making the decisions in the next few weeks. Please go the Academy’s Action Center to support our profession and protect the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Please take action today.
