RD Licensure: Countering Opposition and Making ADA's Case

As ADA considers challenges members face in several communications and media formats from other associations, organizations and competitors, it is important to note that the goal of dietetic licensure is to safeguard the public and ensure quality care.

ADA is working to ensure that members' profession and jobs are secure. Our best ammunition? We have the science behind us, we "know our stuff" and – through ADA – registered dietitians' voices are united.

Dietetics licensure laws specify the activities must be provided by a licensed dietitian, such as medical nutrition therapy. The charge to ensure that the RD, the trusted and respected source of nutrition information, is the health-care professional delivering disease-specific and evidence-based MNT is not intended to restrict or exclude other professionals from providing basic information or education. Nutrition is a broad field and many disciplines help deliver important health messages that include nutrition through their own scopes of practice. We welcome and need their support to address today's nutrition-related health issues.

ADA is working with state affiliates to ensure the public is protected and informed. We know it is hard to read accusations about RDs. But take a look around: The face of the RD is inspiring, diverse and passionate. Members are urged to help ADA work to educate the public and elected officials about who we are and what we do. Watch for more details on ADA's exciting response to the challenges we face.
