The Council

Dietetics and Nutrition Practice Council

The Council is comprised of five members appointed by the Board of Medicine, three are licensed dietitians, one is a nutrition counselor, and one is a consumer member who is 60 years of age or older. Since this Council serves as a "quasi judicial" entity on licensure issues, contact with the members may cause the members to be recused from administrative proceedings. Staff will direct inquiries, when appropriate to the full board for review.
