HB 2570 would allow only
licensed dietitians to "practice dietetics." “Dietetics
practice” as defined in the bill encompasses a wide range of nutrition services
including the integration and application of scientific principles of nutrition,
biochemistry and food in achieving and maintaining human health. These are
services performed routinely by many qualified and practicing nutritionists.
HB 2570 effectively
creates a monopoly on nutrition services
exclusively for dietitians, denying consumers access to expert advice from
nutritionists, some of the most highly
educated and well-respected professionals in the field of nutrition.
Dear [Decision Maker],
