Friday Fun

Wishing You a Wonderful Weekend

This week we talked about The Affordable Care Act which has made preventive services a priority. This is a great opportunity for dietitians. No longer do we have to wait for people to get sick with diabetes or kidney failure before we can provide care. We encourage dietitians to recognize the significance of this join the movement to take insurance!
