On May 9th members from the Genesee Dietetic Association traveled to our states capital in Albany, NY to lobby for licensure for our profession. Overall the trip was a huge success! The group had 13 total meetings, and most of them where with staff members because the Assembly/Senate was in session from 10-2pm on the day of the visit. The good news: Senator Helming’s office already emailed me responded saying she’d vote yes if the bill comes up and Senator Robach was very supportive of the bill (he had so many good questions our meeting went over).
Thank you Abbey, Hannah, Patty and Maureen for taking the trip to Albany to move our profession forward!
