When we take time to participate in the political process set forth by our U.S. Constitution, we make good on those prospects established by our Founding Fathers. More succinctly, we more directly design and determine the communities we live in and nurture their growth for not only ourselves but our children and future generations. Our advocacy does indeed predetermine communal sustainability, longevity and their affects upon the positive growth and development of our youth.
According to the GlobalHealth.gov website, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is seeking to broaden its reach and impact by facilitating an initiative designed to positively impact nutrition across communities and societies. A call for public comment is being broadcasted to residents and citizens.
Some opportunities to participate in this political process include:
1. Written feedback on detailed initiatives: The time frame allotted for written comment is May 19 through June 4. Please submit comments to USglobalnutrition@hhs.gov.
2. A webinar sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will be hosted on May 28, 2014, from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. EST. This will investigate the current plan in motion and evaluate its efficacy.
3. Come and enjoy an in-person meeting with the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Economic Research Service on May 30, 2014, from 9:00 - 11:00 a.m. EST. The building is located at 355 E St, SW, Washington, DC 20024. An RSVP is requested: USglobalnutrition@hhs.gov. A quick reminder to bring appropriate identification for secure check-in.
Thank you all for taking time to share your concerns about the future of our nutritional policy. Our world is dependent upon our proactive participation and collective voice.
