PPW ... and Beyond

More than 450 members from all parts of the country took part in ADA's 2011 Public Policy Workshop, February 6 to 8, in Washington, D.C. Members concluded PPW by visiting their Congressmen and Senators on Capitol Hill. For members who could not make it to the nation's capitol, district congressional visits will take place across the country in March.

Members are encouraged to contact their affiliate Public Policy Coordinator for more information on district visits.

PPW 2011 offered valuable professional development and educational opportunities for members to use as they continue ADA's public policy outreach. Information and photos were posted during PPW to ADA's Facebook page.

A highlight was a spirited debate on proposed food and beverage taxes between Michael F. Jacobson, PhD, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest, and Richard Williams, PhD, director of policy research at the Mercatus Center at George Mason University. An audio recording of the debate will be available soon.

ADA presented U.S. Rep. Danny K. Davis (D.-Ill.) with the Association's 2011 Public Policy Leadership Award for his support of food and nutrition-related legislation. The award was presented at a sold-out fundraising event for ADA's Political Action Committee that was held at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

ADA member Toni Kuehneman, MS, RD, LMNT, received the 2011 Award for Grassroots Excellence for her public policy work with the Nebraska Dietetic Association.

Also at PPW, ADA launched the new Congressional Quarterly State Track System, which allows members to keep current on state-level legislation and regulations. Visit Public Policy to learn more.
