    Positive Change Through the Farm Bill: Empowering Dietitians as Experts and Citizens

    Wednesday, January 17, 2024, 03:00 PM - 04:30 PM CT

    Negotiated and signed every 5–7 years, the Farm Bill has tremendous implications for food production, nutrition assistance, international trade, and many other fields. As our government develops the 2023 Farm Bill, all consumers and healthcare providers need to understand its implications and opportunities for positive influence. Christina Badaracco will review what the Farm Bill includes and how it affects various social and environmental factors, including how RDNs and their patients are affected as taxpayers and consumers. She will also present how RDNs can both advocate and strive for a more just, healthy, and sustainable food system through their work across practice areas. Register here!
