HEAL-WA Legislation


During the 2013 Legislative Session, the Washington State Academy submitted a bill (SB 5206) that would provide dietitians online access to the UW Health Sciences Library.

That bill passed both Houses and was signed in to law on May 15th.  Several Washington State Academy members were in attendance for the signing.  The Department of Health will now write the rules that accompany this legislation.  We are being told that access to CDs and CNs will happen in January 2014.

L to R:  Scott Sigmon (our lobbyist), Terri Fox, Amy Myrtue Nelson, Governor Inslee, Brent Carney
