Letter from the President

The 10th EFAD conference has as its theme ‘The Future is Now ‘. In this very fast paced environment where there are so many opportunities for dietitians it is difficult to keep up! So EFAD – the European Federation of the Associations of Dietitians – with its 10thconference, is exploring some future areas of work for dietitians as well as moving forward in current areas of dietetic practice.

We are delighted with the programme – over 70 speakers, including international experts, will cover topics as diverse as nutrigenomics, food and mental health, microbiota, sustainability, eating outside the home and using social media and using new technologies in dietetics .  There will also be updates on what’s new in nutrition economics (cost effectiveness), malnutrition, obesity, diabetes, primary care, diet and exercise, oncology and public health dietetics.  And of course there will be presentations of dietitians’ original research with prizes for the best ones. So truly something for everyone!

Over 350 dietitians have registered to attend the conference.  Don’t miss this opportunity to be inspired by joining colleagues from all over Europe to update yourself, to network and enjoy the exercise opportunities and social events planned to make this the largest, healthiest and best EFAD conference ever!  Checkout the programme and look to the future for dietitians.

It will certainly be my pleasure to welcome you to the marvelous World Trade Centre in Rotterdam, only 30 minutes from Schiphol Airport!
