Pennsylvania nurse practitioners learn to love lean beef More than 450 nurse practitioners from across the state attended the 11th annual meeting “Advancing NP’s Toward Full Practice Authority,” where beef’s nutrition was highlighted. Attendees thoroughly enjoyed receiving the Beef in an Optimal Lean Diet (BOLD) Study toolkits, nutrition fact sheets, and beef recipes to assist their clients and patients. Many were pleased to see beef represented at their meeting, as nutrition is a large component of healthy living.
