ASPHN's See It. Say It. Share It. campaign is predicated on the concept that the value of public health nutritionists is all around us, but sometimes it can be difficult to see.
As the COVID-19 crisis continues to unfold, it is the nation's public health nutritionists who are on the front lines of this public health emergency, ensuring that our nation's most vulnerable receive vital nutritional assistance.
You can see the work of public health nutritionists unfolding in real time. Thanks to their efforts, millions of children continue to receive breakfast and lunch while schools are closed; reliable, accurate nutrition advice is available to mothers in order to care for their infants and children; and programs like SNAP and WIC have been extended so that families can purchase nutritious foods.
While these are just some of the services you may know about, state and local public health nutritionists provide hundreds of nutrition-based programs designed to improve the health of their communities.
The uncertainty associated with COVID-19 may place many of these programs at risk. But make no mistake. Public health nutritionists will find innovative and responsible ways to support at-risk populations.
As the organizational voice for public health nutritionists, ASPHN wishes to acknowledge and thank our members for their incredible work and leadership. The value of their work is all around us. And we are seeing it... minute by minute... hour by hour... day by day.
