To honor National Nutrition Month 2017, a congressional resolution celebrating the Academy’s Centennial was introduced on March 1, in both the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives. 

Help build more support in Congress for our resolution. Ask your members of Congress to sign on and recognize our Academy and our profession. The Academy’s Centennial website contains a wealth of background information that may be helpful in gaining their support.

Each of the resolution’s original sponsors is from Ohio, where our Academy was founded in 1917.  The Senate sponsors are Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman, and the House sponsors are Marcia Fudge and Pat Tiberi.  

Click here to take action. It takes only a few minutes! The Academy is counting on you to send a letter today.
