In addition, Sheats was recently elected chair of the Minnesota Board of Dietetics and Nutrition Practice. Appointed by Governor Mark Dayton, board members provide leadership to the Health Licensing Board that protects the public through the regulation of dietitians and nutritionists in the State of Minnesota.
