September 2020: On 18 September 2020, Dietitians Day, ASCIA Associate (Dietitian) members were sent the following messaage from the ASCIA CEO, Jill Smith: On Dietitians Day 2020, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you on behalf of ASCIA, for the important work that you perform, which has been more challenging than usual over the past six months. This year’s theme ‘Dietitians Make a Difference’ celebrates the essential impacts that Dietitians are demonstrating through their work, leading to better health and nutrition for communities. ASCIA has always recognised the important work that you perform, which is greatly appreciated, not just on Dietitians Day! Dietitians are very well represented on ASCIA Council by Kathy Beck, who continues to advocate and advise on your behalf, following on from Ingrid Roche and Dr Merryn Netting who were previously on ASCIA Council. You are all a pleasure to work with and and we have a wealth of ASCIA website resources and courses to show for it.
In 2021 the annual ASCIA Dietitians and Nurses Updates will be held on Friday 3 September 2021 at the Melbourne Convention Centre, as part of the ASCIA 2021 Conference.
ASCIA Dietitians Forum is now available on the ASCIA website. To access the forum you must be logged in and then go to www.allergy.org.au/forum/index
The main role of the forum is to enhance communication between dietitians who are ASCIA Associate members, and provide opportunities for online discussions about current issues regarding food allergies.
The forum is moderated by the current Chair of the ASCIA Dietitians committee and representative on ASCIA Council, Kathy Beck.
