The State Board of Dietetic Practice was created in
1985 to protect the public by setting standards for the
practice of dietetics in Maryland (Chapter 773, Acts
of 1985). The Board licenses dietitians and nutrition-
ists in Maryland. Licenses to practice dietetics must be
renewed with the Board every two years.
The Board has seven members appointed to
four-year terms by the Governor. Two are consum-
ers and five are dietitians or nutritionists. Dietitian
or nutritionist members must be licensed to practice
dietetics in Maryland. Of these, one must be en-
gaged primarily in clinical dietetic practice, one in
community or public health dietetic practice, one in
consulting dietetic practice, and the fifth a faculty
member in the field of dietetics or nutritional sci-
ence. Dietitian members must have practiced die-
tetics for at least five of the past ten years. The
Governor appoints the dietitian and licensed nutri-
tionist members with the advice of the Secretary of
Health and Mental Hygiene and Senate advice and
consent. These members are selected from a list of
ten dietitians and licensed nutritionists submitted
jointly by the Maryland Dietetic Association, the
Maryland Chapter of the American Nutritionists
Association, and the presidents of Maryland insti-
tutions of higher education which graduate dietetic
practitioners. Consumer members may not be die-
titians or licensed nutritionists or have any house-
hold members who are, and they may not have a
financial interest in providing goods or services to
dietitians or licensed nutritionists, or dietary goods
or services to consumers. Authorization for the
Board continues until July 1, 1995 (Code Health
Occupations Article, secs. 5-101 through 5-502).
