An Advanced Practice in Clinical Nutrition representative has been appointed for the 2016-2017 program year. A public representative has held a position on CDR since 1984 and has full rights and privileges. Beginning in June 2006, a newly credentialed registered dietitian serves on the Commission for a two-year term.
