UNPA / DSC Luncheon Briefing ~ Micronutrient Deficiencies: Hidden Hunger ~ Wednesday, June 13 @ 12:00 PM EDT
Dear Colleagues --
Many of you may not be aware that AHPA, CHPA, CRN, NPA, and UNPA jointly co-sponsor educational briefings for members of Congress through the Dietary Supplement Caucus. I attach a memo from Ingrid Lebert at CRN announcing the next briefing. The speaker is Dr. Jeffrey Blumberg, an internationally recognized expert on food nutrition and health policy.
This is one of those behind-the-scenes programs that are happening at UNPA.

Subject: DSC Luncheon Briefing ~ Micronutrient Deficiencies: Hidden Hunger ~ Wednesday, June 13 @ 12:00 PM EDT
The Congressional Dietary Supplement Caucus (DSC), in cooperation with AHPA, CHPA, CRN, NPA and UNPA, will convene its 5th educational briefing for the 115th Congress (its 33rd since the Caucus was first registered in 2006).
The briefing will be held in the Members Room of the Jefferson Building (Library of Congress) on Wednesday, June 13 from 12:00--1:00 PM EDT (see attached flyer). It is considered a “widely attended event”—both Congressional offices and general public are welcome to attend, and lunch is provided—with Dr. Jeffrey Blumberg, nationally recognized scientist, author and speaker, providing a scientific perspective on the current understanding of “hidden hunger” in the US and outlining policies suggestions to encourage improved healthcare practices.
I invite you to join us and hope you might also encourage your colleagues or representatives to attend, as well.
As always, please don’t hesitate to contact me if you wish to participate or have any questions…hope to see you there!
