Dietetics in Health Care Communities
of New Jersey (DHCC of NJ)

This organization is a volunteer group made up of Dietitians/Dietetic Technicians who either live or work in the state of New Jersey.

       Our purpose is to establish a regular and frequent mechanism to keep dietitians aware of current issues and information relevant to their work and interests; to provide a greater visibility for the dietitian within the structure of the Acacdemy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) and the national level of DHCC.

       Our group is a member of the New Jersey Long Term Care Leader's Coalition.                     (NJLTCLC)



Seminar has been cancelled for April 21st, 2020.  Annual membership drive will be held with an extension of membership at the regular fee of $30 until June 30th, 2020.  Next meeting scheduled for Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020.  Stay well!
