The Summit for Increasing Physician Nutrition Experts brought nutrition leaders from North America together to forge new strategies for promoting greater physician involvement in clinical nutrition. The initiatives derived from the Summit address issues related to education, board certification, research, and clinical practice. To seek consensus from participating societies and to establish a format for the implementation of these initiatives, a council of representatives needs to be formed. The council must be noncompetitive, promote collaboration and facilitation of nutrition activities for participating societies, and ultimately provide service to the healthcare system and individual practitioners. The structure of this council may evolve from a temporary task force to an enduring committee. Participating societies will be asked to fund expenses for their representative and host council meetings on a rotating basis. The council will assume responsibility for pursuing Summit initiatives and providing ongoing communication and collaboration between participant groups.
