DAILY ACTION ITEMS

 

Step 1 Register to receive action alerts.
Step 2 Visit our Facebook page and participate in our poll. Don’t forget to follow our page while you’re there so you don’t miss out on any important updates!
Step 3 If you’re on Facebook, add our #SpeakUp4MNEA frame to your photo for the week of June 14-18.  Click here to see a preview and use this link to automatically apply the frame (be sure to set the end date to custom – 6/18/2021 at 5pm – so it shows the whole week!)
Step 4 Share your story about medical nutrition. Congress needs to see stories from as many people as possible. Read some of the stories we’ve received from others in your state here and others with your condition here and then add yours!
Step 5 Send your elected officials a message asking them to support the Medical Nutrition Equity Act.
Step 6 Post a picture on social media showing what medical foods mean to you!
Step 7 Design the image for our next campaign! We need to keep the pressure on Congress to get this bill passed. Help us by designing a poster or other digital image that we can use in our on-going efforts. Look for more details the week of June 28.
