Chicago Dietetic Association Participates in Rep. Danny Davis Event

"Ask the Dietitian" was a popular event at last week's Health and Wellness Summit and Expo in Chicago organized by the office of Congressman Danny Davis (D.-Ill.). ADA was asked to participate in the event because of the strong relationship ADA enjoys with Rep. Davis.

The inaugural event featured health education, health screenings, celebrity food demonstrations and health and fitness demonstrations. The well-attended event was organized to address problems associated with preventative care, access to healthy food choices, healthy lifestyle choices and chronic disease and treatment options in the 7th Congressional District and surrounding areas where high prevalence rates of chronic kidney disease, diabetes and hypertension are found.

At the summit, registered dietitians gave presentations on childhood obesity and spoke with teens about the new MyPlate tool, and Carolyn Tampe, RD, MS, president of the Chicago Dietetic Association, spoke about nutrition and its impact on health and wellness at a press conference.

ADA has supported Rep. Davis through the ADA Political Action Committee and awarded the Congressman the Public Policy Leadership Award at ADA's 2011 Public Policy Workshop.
