State Licensure Agency List

The majority of states have enacted laws which regulate the practice of dietetics.  Should you plan to practice dietetics in these states it is important that you contact a state regulatory agency prior to practicing dietetics.  In many states it is a VIOLATION of state law to practice dietetics without a license.
