The Conference Programme has been updated and can be viewed here

Our 2021 theme, ‘Te Anga Hou – Changing of the seasons, focuses on the changing healthcare landscape and the role dietitians may play in embracing and addressing the challenges and opportunities to meet the health needs of New Zealanders.

The event will include a mix of original research, topical debates and workshop style learning with concurrent streams including –

  • Allergy
  • Mental health & eating disorders
  • Gerontology
  • Intensive care
  • Public Health & Food Industry
  • Gastroenterology
  • Diabetes & health technology

With a speaker line-up that includes Karena & Kasey Bird and a powerful story of transformation by Dr. Paul Wood, the conference is shaping up to be an exciting couple of days.

Virtual Experience 

Although naturally we are disappointed that we are unable to hold an in-person event, this does enable us to do something different but certainly no less exciting! We have worked hard to ensure the networking and discussion elements that we love so much at an in-person conference, are also a significant part of the virtual experience.

All delegates will be able to view the conference content for six months following the event – just in time to complete your MyCCP.
