Abstract

The public is increasingly nutrition conscious and actively seeks reliable sources of nutrition education. Physicians with appropriate training in nutrition can and should be a powerful force in providing accurate nutrition information and quality health care. As physician educators, dietetics professionals can facilitate this outcome. Appropriate use of nutrition resources and professionals will efficiently and effectively maintain or improve the nutritional status of the public and, ultimately, the health of our nation.
