TAKE ACTION for our “Road to Licensure!”

Our licensure bill for dietitians in Arizona unfortunately has yet to be passed though it has come a long way and we are not giving up! With your help and contributions, we can continue to make this effort by funding our lobbyist.

Instead of a single donation, we ask you to commit to a monthly contribution of your choice. Even a $5 per month donation will help support the advancement of our profession in Arizona by helping us reach our $10,000 goal.

Licensure isn’t just for members but for ALL dietitians in AZ. If you know an RD who isn’t an AZAND member, please refer them to our fundraising campaign here on the website and our GoFundMe page. Please explain to them the consistent work we do to advocate for our profession.
