I really enjoyed the Public Policy Workshop! It was definitely a great way for dietetic interns to be involved.

Policy from the Ground Up
On March 10th, Wendy and I had an opportunity to attend the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetic’s 2013 Public Policy Workshop at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. At the Public Policy Workshop (PPW), I was able to sit in on lectures focusing on topics such as developing influential messages, sequestration, Older Americans Act, Affordable Care Act, industry etc. Along with being able to attend the workshop, I had an opportunity to work at the Nutrition Informatics Genius Bar during the networking session. Wendy and I provided technology tool presentations on Weebly, Dropbox and Eyejot. For each technology tool we provided information on how nutrition professionals can use these tools in their practice
