    Wednesday, October 7th from 12:00 pm-1:30 pm

    Due to COVID-19 restrictions and the need to physically distance ourselves,

    OAND will be offering a live, virtual Policy Day via WebEx.

    GCDA feels strongly that our members, interns, and students should be informed regarding legislative policies and initiatives that impact the dietetic professionals nationally and in Ohio.  Because of the importance of this for our profession, the GCDA Board has agreed to pay for the registration for the first 20 who sign up on our GCDA website.

    The students and interns from Cincinnati State and the University of Cincinnati are already being registered as groups.

    Event materials and the WebEx link will be sent to those who sign up as soon as these are made available by OAND.   If you have questions, please contact Cynthia Blocksom at cynthiablocksom@gmail.com.
