Join us on March 8th to celebrate National RDN/NDTR Day, as we return to Capitol Hill for AZAND’s Annual Legislative Day! AZAND members will be encouraging our legislators to put their best fork forward to improve the health of Arizonans and learn about the important role that RDNs and NDTRs play in promoting a healthy Arizona.
The event will include opportunities to connect with our state legislators, to engage with health policy experts in our community, and to learn about the power in advocacy work.
Morning speaker sessions will take place at the ASU Downtown campus, in the Walter Cronkite Building. After lunch we will be heading to the Arizona Capitol Complex to meet with our legislators.
