Why attend?

The Dietitians Australia conference welcomes Dietitians from across Australia and overseas each year to learn and network together.

The scientific program brings together a range of expert speakers and panels to present the latest research, case studies and practices centred around the conference theme of “What’s possible?” and incorporates the key academic themes of transform, reinvent, and diversify.

The program has been developed to offer something for all aspects of the profession, both clinical and non-clinical, across management, administration, education, research, advisory roles, communication, program development and implementation, regulatory roles, policy development, food service, food security, food supply and sustainability.

With networking breaks throughout the program, delegates can network with other attendees and connect with sponsors and exhibitors using the networking functions within the virtual conference platform.

Virtual registrations include live online access to all conference sessions for your selected days as well as on-demand access to recordings of conference sessions for three-months post-conference.
