Jean Wagner, Megan Waltz, Mike Glasgow and WAND’s new lobbyist Tim Hoven met with Representative Erik Severson (R-Star Lake) on June 13. Representative Severson is a physician in his second term in the Assembly, and is currently Chair of the Assembly Health Committee. The meeting was scheduled to update Representative Severson on WAND’s activities, including a review of current and future policy priorities. Representative Severson shared with the Academy that one of his current projects is to review the administrative rules regulating health care professionals – including dietitians. WAND leadership offered their assistance to address any questions or issues that result from the review. The meeting was the first of what WAND hopes to be many meetings to help legislators recognize WAND members as food and nutrition leaders in Wisconsin.
