Malnutrition Call to Action


As ASPEN stakeholders with an interest in malnutrition, we need you to contact your US Senator to ask him or her to co-sponsor the bipartisan Malnutrition Awareness Week Senate Resolution 716 that was introduced on September 24 by Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA).

Go to https://www.congress.gov to find your Senator. Each Senator has an office phone number and email address.

Share the information below and ask your Senator’s office to contact Sarah Shapiro in Senator Chris Murphy’s office to co-sponsor the resolution.


Dear Senator XX, 

This email is to ask you to co-sponsor the bipartisan Malnutrition Awareness Week Senate Resolution 716 that was introduced on September 24th by Senators Chris Murphy (D-CT) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA). Please have your office contact Sarah Shapiro ([email protected]) in Senator Chris Murphy’s office to co-sponsor the resolution. The goal of Malnutrition Awareness Week is to educate healthcare professionals to identify and treat for malnutrition earlier; educate consumers/patients to discuss their nutrition status with healthcare professionals; and to increase awareness of nutrition’s role on patient recovery.

Thank you for your support of this important issue.
