DHCC Sub-units

Corrections and Dietetic Technicians are tailored to help meet the needs of these specialized practice areas. There is no extra cost for DHCC members! It is a Member Benefit!


The Corrections Sub-unit is the advocate and resource for food and nutrition professionals working in the field of corrections by supporting them through current information, trends, regulations, research, tools and networking opportunities.
