Benefits of PNPG Membership

Joining PNPG is a smart move for any dietitian with an interest in Pediatric Nutrition. PNPG provides the perfect opportunity to learn from, as well as share knowledge with, 3000+ members who are leaders in the field.

DPG dues are paid annually, along with Academy membership dues. Academy members may join a DPG almost any time during the year by paying appropriate dues. (The last day in February is the end of the period to join a DPG for the membership year ending May 31.) Dues vary depending on the DPG.
