Webinars and Education
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) are updated by law every five years. The 8th edition, DGA 2015-2020 was released in January, 2016.

Two nutrition experts will discuss recommendations for developing healthier eating patterns, suggestions for small, manageable dietary changes, and resources for putting the DGA into practice.
