The Utah Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics works hand-in-hand with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to improve the nation's health and advance the profession through research, education and advocacy. Advocacy is critical to achieving the mission, vision, goals and strategies outlined in the Academy's Strategic Plan Roadmap. Public policy significantly influences and forms the Academy's public image and that of the dietetics profession.  You can link to information on this page and in the special topics listed to the left of this page on UAND's and the Academy's advocacy efforts.
