This week’s photos were taken in Washington, DC (of course), at the second public meeting of the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committee, held at the US Department of Agriculture (@USDA).

I was impressed with the passion and interest of clinicians across the diet diplomacy spectrum who came to Washington to share their experience and some science.

I’ve been in a lot of social movements before (topic for another post, or read more of the posts on this blog) & this one also has the characteristic leadership of people who don’t accept the status quo.

I was particularly drawn to the comments made by Pirianka Wali, MD (@WaliPriyanka), which you can view on YouTube here.

See what you think, and enjoy the photos.

Reminder, my disclosures

I have a page with my disclosures and conflicts of interest which you can review (I have none). I attended the meeting on my own time, using my own resources, representing myself as an observer.
