The Dietitians Association of Australia invites you to join us at the 36th National Conference on the Gold Coast.

The theme of the 2019 conference is ‘more than meets the eye’, and we invite you to discover all the excitement that a conference in Queensland has to offer. The phrase ‘beautiful one day perfect the next’ is synonymous with Queensland and our beaches are the best in the world, but attending the conference will take you on a journey of discovery that is bound to provide more than meets the eye.

The conference will focus on key issues surrounding indigenous health, the mental health of our health professionals and students, and the nutritional issues of children – the future of a healthier Australia! Other themes will encompass the challenges of clinical and professional practices as we approach the next decade.

Come along and present, share, learn and network in Queensland, and we guarantee you will find more than meets the eye! We are proud and pleased to welcome you to the Gold Coast in 2019.
