Please take a minute to ask your representative to sign on as an original co-sponsor of the EAT for Health Act.

We have provided some text for you, but we encourage you to personalize your message to make it stand out. If you decide to write your own email, please be polite and encouraging. Here are some talking points:

• I am writing as a constituent to urge you to sign on as an original co-sponsor of the EAT for Health Act.
• The need to improve and increase medical nutrition education has been cited by professional groups, scientific publications, and a congressional mandate.
• Seven out of 10 deaths among Americans each year are from chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes that can be prevented and treated through proper nutrition and other lifestyle changes.
• The vast majority of physicians feel that nutrition counseling should be part of primary care visits, but very few feel qualified to offer it.
• A recent survey found that only 27 percent of U.S. medical schools provide the minimum 25 hours of nutrition education recommended by the National Academies of Science.
• Please sign on as an original co-sponsor of the EAT for Health Act and do everything you can to ensure its passage.

Please note: Only United States citizens are able to take this action. Please check here to take action on other PCRM issues >>
