Communications Committee

GOED's Communications Committee helps direct the future path of communications within the organization. Topics under discussion include our ongoing consumer and health practitioner education campaigns, improvements to communications to members as well as strategic and brainstorming discussions around important communications topics as they arise.

The committee is chaired by Sarah Christianslund of Epax, and meets by conference call on the third Tuesday of every month. Below is a list of current members. Please contact Elana Natker, RD, or Vicky Lin if you're interested in joining.
