My year as Chair has come to an end and it has truly been an honor. I would like to thank our executive committee members for their passion and generosity with their time. It takes a team of dedicated volunteers to make FCP programming happen and we couldn’t do it without these exceptional individuals. I would also like to thank our executive director Barbara Pyper, MS, RD, SNS, FAND, and her team members Jan Oliver, RD, and Cara Nichols, RDN, for the magic they work to keep us running smoothly. Thank you!

Stay connected with FCP DPG on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to as we transition into our new fiscal year in June. We’ll keep you updated on our webinars, FNCE® events, and more through the summer and into fall. 

Garrett Berdan, RDN
