The aim of the Society is to promote nutrition and well-being through evidence-based practical nutrition advice/guidelines. The society believes this will promote healthy habits that will impact people’s overall health in a positive way. Healthy habits are essential in preventing the onset/severity of lifestyle-related disease and in reducing the economic burden on health care costs associated with an aging population. Healthy habits can also extend the healthy life expectancy of this demographic.
Practical nutrition advice based on scientific evidence and its appropriate application has become increasingly important to improve overall health and quality of life (QOL) through food, especially when considering the nutritional support that is required to manage individuals with chronic illness.
This conference provides opportunities for researchers or practitioners in dietetics and dietetics-related fields to present and discuss research findings, and to acquire up to date knowledge about nutrition, dietetics, and related topics, to help promote health and ultimately enhance QOL by further advancing evidence-based dietetic practices.
