Who are nutrition care providers that should be part of the healthcare solution?

Each of the following groups fills a distinct and important niche in our healthcare system. We would be best served by ensuring the right of each group to practice nutrition within the scope of their training:

  • Advance-degreed nutrition professionals with robust credentials
  • Undergraduate-degreed nutrition professionals
  • Professionals trained to use nutrition in other professional contexts, such as: Medical Doctors, Chiropractors, Naturopaths, Acupuncturists, Pharmacists, Nurses, Mental Health providers, Athletic Trainers, etc.
  • Coaches and others from training programs in lifestyle and wellness coaching

There is a health crisis in America. Reducing the supply of qualified nutrition practitioners to protect one private trade association is a threat to public health, and the economy.
