Texas Dietetic Association Leaders Meet with Lieutenant Governor

When Texas Dietetic Association President-elect Karen Beathard, MS, RD, LD, and members Stacy Fisher, RD, LD, and Adrien Paczosa, RD, LD, met recently with Texas Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, they expected a brief discussion. But the meeting – covering key issues including health care reform and childhood obesity and how registered dietitians and dietetic technicians, registered are critical to improving the health of Texans – lasted nearly an hour.

In Texas, the lieutenant governor is the president of the state Senate and plays a large part in defining the legislative agenda for the state. Debbie King, MS, RD, LD, the Texas State Policy Representative who organized the meeting, said it "helped establish a significant relationship with the lieutenant governor."

For ADA, state policy representatives are crucial to establishing such relationships for affiliates with key legislators and agency officials. Members can locate and contact their SPRs on ADA's website.
