Help Develop the Weight Management DPG Recommendations for the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health
The Academy is working with affiliates and DPGs to gather input to influence the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health. Please join us on Thursday, June 23 at 7:00pm EST by registering here (https://us06web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZ0ucuyqqT0rGNWK7T73_bQfN5JD7ZptDWgL) for a discussion on the policy priorities of Weight Management DPG.
To learn more about the White House Conference and to read background material, you may access resources here. Five pillars have been set for the meeting: 1) Improve food access and affordability; 2) Integrate nutrition and health; 3) Empower all consumers to make and have access to healthy choices; 4) Support physical activity for all; and 5) Enhance nutrition and food security research.
Considering these pillars, be ready to discuss the following two questions:
- What specific comments do you have on topic areas or issues that you feel should be included in the White House Conference on Hunger, Nutrition and Health or other suggestions for the event?
- What policy recommendations do you hope will be advanced through this conference?
If you are unable to attend the meeting, please submit your input directly to the Academy by filling out this brief survey.
