Registered dietitian nutritionists play a critical role in addressing malnutrition, let’s be sure our policy makers hear our united voice!  Please send your members of Congress email letters today telling them to support the Academy’s proposed malnutrition electronic clinical quality measures. These measures would hold health care facilities accountable for screening patients for malnutrition, documenting the diagnosis of malnutrition, ensuring a nutrition assessment is completed, and finally, developing a nutrition care plan.
Now is the time for Medicare recipients to have the quality care and nutrition interventions that can improve health and reduce hospital readmissions – don’t you agree?
Click here to take action. It takes only a few minutes!

It is urgent that your U.S. Senators and Representative hear from you. Please take action today.
