National Nutrition Month | March 19, 2014

On Wednesday, March 19th, several of Delaware's dietitians were in attendance as Delaware's legislature passed a concurrent resolution to recognize March 2014 as National Nutrition Month and encourage the citizens of Delaware to learn and raise awareness about health and nutrition.

Immediately following this reading, we visited with Governor Jack Markell and discussed our mutual concerns - and work - regarding hunger and obesity in the first state.

We are so fortunate to live in a state where our state legislators truly support Registered Dietitians/Nutritionists and look to our participation in the nutrition and well-being of its citizens.
