⚕️ ABOUT 'DINE WITH A DOC' ⚕️
The Doctors For Nutrition health promotion charity is excited to be launching our in-real-life social networking initiative 'Dine with a Doc'. During our inaugural Australasian Nutrition in Healthcare Conference held in February 2019, attendees expressed how refreshing it was to be surrounded by like-minded people interested in the role of food in maintaining and regaining health. Delegates let us know that once a year was not enough to satiate their appetite for solidarity! The feedback was that it would be great if there could be an informal way to come together on a more regular basis.
'Dine with a Doc' has been created by Doctors For Nutrition as a forum to share information, connect with your peers and enjoy great food and drinks in fabulous restaurant and cafe settings across Australia and New Zealand. Led by our Advisory Council team of Ambassadocs, dietitians and adjunct health practitioners, each 'Dine with a Doc' event will showcase short talks or panel discussions on the latest in evidence-based nutrition science.
Whether a breakfast, brunch, lunch or dinner time slot, you'll enjoy a delicious, nutritious whole food plant-based meal and the opportunity to socialise and build your networks. Together, we can learn the whys and ways to help elevate the important role of nutrition in healthcare institutions and society.
These gatherings are primarily created for those working or studying in the healthcare sector. However, interested members of the general public are also welcome to attend.
📚 CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT 📚
Upon request, attendees can be provided with a certificate of attendance (outlining contact hours and topics). This may be used to self-claim CPD points.
