Welcome to the Healthy Aging (HA) Dietetic Practice Group!
The Healthy Aging DPG members work in many different environments but we all have one thing in common – we believe that we can make a positive impact on wellness in older adults. We have spent the last few years solidifying our mission and vision. Our next goal is to develop additional resources to help our DPG members carry out our mission. We had a very exciting Spring EC Meeting brainstorming on this subject and we have a long list of wonderful ideas. To learn more about our DPG or if you’re interested in being involved in our resource development projects please feel free to contact our Executive Committee.
