ASCIA Dietitians News

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.
