The Council

Dietetics and Nutrition Practice Council

The Dietetics and Nutrition Practice Council is comprised of five members appointed by the Board of Medicine, three licensed dietitian/nutritionists, one licensed nutrition counselor and one 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 Council for review.
