Welcome to the Hunger and Environment Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group
Calling All Local Breastfeeding Advocates!
Join us in Washington, DC for a "Welcome Congress" day of action on Monday, January 9, 2017!Academy members will join our partners in the United States Breastfeeding Committee (USBC) to visit Congressional offices with a token "welcome" gift and informational materials to raise the visibility of breastfeeding and make the case for protection of the ACA breastfeeding provisions. You are welcome to participate at any time during the day Monday, even if you only have an hour or two.
While the Academy does not have funding to support travel, the USBC will have a room block with a group rate available for Sunday and Monday nights, for those coming from out of town. A pre-event briefing will be held in the hotel Sunday evening. Stay tuned for more details! If you would like to attend, please RSVP to Jeanne Blankenship, vice president policy initiatives and advocacy to reserve your spot. The Welcome Congress packet materials and briefing will also be made available virtually to anyone able to do in-district visits.
