Media Coverage of Report: And Now a Word From Our Sponsors

In January, I released a report called, And Now a Word from Our Sponsors: Are America’s Nutrition Professionals in the Pocket of Big Food? The report continues to receive media attention, in part due to a Change.org petition asking the Academy to clean up its act. Be sure to sign on. Also, please support Dietitians for Professional Integrity, a new group of dedicated registered dietitians working to change the Academy’s sponsorship policies.

One Response to “Media Coverage of Report: And Now a Word From Our Sponsors”

  1. This is by far more than a list of media coverage of your latest report, but a petition signed by organizations, experts, students, casual bloggers and more in respond to food injustice. A clear display of food advocacy.

    I hope your report continues to sounds it’s alarm and bring fellow food advocates together, as it clearly has done thus far.
