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, almost 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.
