Event description


The British Dietetic Association (BDA) is the professional association and trade union for UK Dietitians.

Welcome to our latest event, organised by BDA Yorkshire Branch - winners of BDA Branch of the Year 2017-18.

This event is taking place on Saturday 30th March 2019, where we will be giving you an insight into plant based diets and sustainability in the hospital and home.

As a branch our events are aimed to give our members a brief insight in to a topic and provide a forum for sharing good practice amongst BDA registered dietitians in the Yorkshire area.

We hope this event will be especially useful to those who are new to this area or are just wanting to update themselves. If you are working in this area already, we suggest looking at the BDA Public Health Specialist Group for events they may offer to give you more detailed information in this topic area. However with a range of speakers, sponsors and the etworking opportunites available we hope our event will have something to interest everyone.

FYI: We will be providing a selection of plant based foods ONLY for our lunch for this event.
