Maryland RD to Receive the Academy’s Award for Grassroots Excellence 

Barbara Hoffstein, RD, LD from Maryland has been named winner of the 2015 Award for Grassroots Excellence. This is the Academy’s top award for nutrition advocacy. Barbara’s work in public policy and her leadership in the affiliate were cited in her nomination by the Maryland Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.  She has educated and involved affiliate members from across the state to be active and visible participants in state-wide initiatives to improve the health of the citizens of Maryland.  In addition, she has become a fixture at the Maryland State House testifying for continued dietetic licensure and increasing the strength of the Maryland licensing board. Barbara has worked to meet Maryland’s public policy goals by developing a working relationship with state legislators and the state insurance commission.  Under Barbara’s leadership as the state public policy representative, the affiliate has had a great presence and their voice has been heard. Barbara will be recognized for her achievements during PPW in June. 

Congratulations, Barbara!
