ENDietS Students’ Day

Welcome at the pre-conference Students’ Day webpage!


Dear students,

We invite you to the ENDietS Student Day that will take place on the 31st of October 2019, at the MOA Hotel in Berlin, Germany.

As you probably already know, ENDietS (European Network of Dietetic Students) is the dietetic student network of EFAD and, this year, we are having a students’ day for you, just before the 12thEFAD Conference. This is your chance to meet dietitians and dietetic students from all over Europe and enjoy networking, making connections and interact with wonderful people. We are waiting for you to share your knowledge and experience with us!

Our Student Day aims to make clear that dietetic students have a voice and they can stand out and make a difference to the world’s public health. Are you keen to contribute to this?

Come to Berlin, we can’t wait to get to know you!

Word of our presidents

Presidents of ENDietS talk about Students’ Day

I am very glad this year’s Students’ Day and EFAD conference are taking place in Berlin and I get to attend as a president of ENDietS. We have already set up the main ideas in order to accomplish another Student Day with high attendance and success. We are looking forward for students to come so we can all meet, interact and share experiences. Our aim is to strengthen our network and keep strengthening it each year. Our theme is “Let’s make a difference” and that is what we are planning to do!
Marianna Kalliostra, Harokopio University, Athens, Greece

Presidents of ENDietS talk about Students’ Day

As a president of such a huge platform with incredible opportunity to rise and develop, I have to admit that I am really proud of our ENDietS team. This year, our idea is to inspire and encourage other students to accept new challenges, be more open-minded and share experience. We are giving our best to successfully organize Students’ Day, which will take a place in Berlin, Germany. This year we will make a difference.
