Health Reform

In anticipation of challenges facing both the President and Congress, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics has developed its own set of tenets by which it will analyze and critique any health care reform package presented to Congress. These tenets focus on preventive and interventional health promotion and care and the role of the registered dietitian in maintaining health and wellness; disease prevention; and chronic care management throughout the continuum of life—preconception to end of life care.

These tenets are:

  1. The health of all Americans should improve as a result of our health policy choices. Sufficient resources must be made available to ensure optimal health.
  2. Access to quality health care is a right that must be extended to all Americans.
  3. Nutrition services, from pre-conception through end of life, are an essential component of comprehensive health care.
  4. Stable, sufficient and reliable funding is necessary for our health care system to provide everyone access to a core package of benefits.
  5. Health care must be patient-centered.
