Getting Your Message Across to Congress

June 5, 2024

It’s vital for constituents to share their voice with elected officials regarding the importance of nutrition research and science to help shape funding and other policy decisions. This webinar will guide ASN members in effectively communicating with members of Congress and other elected officials. It will showcase ASN resources available to help members communicate nutrition research policy issues of importance and will show researchers how to use these same skills in communicating nutrition science messages to Congress, state and local elected officials and their staff. 

Organized by ASN's Committee on Advocacy and Science Policy (CASP)
