"Unfortunately, there are many opportunities for the public to be exposed to misinformation or incorrect practices about foods and nutrition and their role in health and disease," she says.  "It is critical that the State of Oregon serve the public by preserving the integrity of those hired to deliver nutrition education and services and medical nutrition therapy to those with the knowledge, training, and experience required to maintain the credential of a licensed dietitian."
