Midwest Nutrition Team (MNT) District Association is comprised of dietitians from several counties in the western part of Iowa just northwest of Des Moines. We meet 2-3 times per year, one of these being a fun networking only meeting at a restaurant in one of our counties. Our membership has dietitians who work at hospitals, Hy-Vee, ISU Extension and Outreach, St. Gregory Retreat Center and of course Consulting Dietitians.
Membership in MNT is $10.00 per year. We offer a 1 hour CPE at 2 of our meetings. Meetings are held at various locations in several of our counties. We take turns hosting. CPE topics this year included: Appropriate lab testing for Cardiac Patients and best practices for Nutrition Interventions for Sarcoma.
Our meetings are fairly casual and usually current topics important to dietitians are discussed and this year it did include the state licensure issues debated and the changes to the Affordable Care act. We love having new dietitians to inject new ideas and topics of discussion.
