The Conference Programme has been updated and can be viewed here

Our 2022 theme, ‘Te Kākano – The Seed’ follows on from our 2021 theme ‘Te Anga Hou – Changing of the seasons’ where we focussed on the changing health care landscape and Dietitians NZ commitment to Te Tiriti o Waitangi. Te Kākano – The Seed, is a metaphor for the growth of Dietitians NZ and Te Kahui Manukura o Kai Ora, the generation of new ideas, innovation and the new health system, as well as how we as dietitians nurture the seed inside whānau and the people we work with so they can flourish. It also acknowledges how the kākano carries the whakapapa of generations gone before and teaches us to utilise the past to inform our journey forward.

The event will include a mix of original research, an engaging debate and workshop style learning with concurrent streams including –

  • Influence & Advocacy
  • Paediatrics
  • Sports Nutrition
  • Business Management
  • Gastroenterology
  • Bariatric
  • Pregnancy & maternal health
  • Oncology

With a speaker line-up that includes Dr Michelle Dickinson AKA Nanogirl and Dave Letele, this year is shaping up to be our best yet!
