Dietitians of Canada National Conference
Capitalize on our Connections, Ottawa, June 5 – 8, 2019
The Dietitians of Canada National Conference is THE annual event where Canadian dietitians, students, new professionals, educators and researchers gather to explore current issues and challenges in dietetic practice. This once-a-year opportunity, held in beautiful and historic Ottawa, Canada’s capital city, in 2019, will allow you to connect with thought leaders and subject matter experts, and walk away with new skills and resources you can use to help improve patient and client outcomes.
Over 3 days in June, the DC Conference will offer 28 different concurrent sessions and 9 skill building workshops; over 60 presentations highlighting the latest findings in dietetics and nutrition research; and an extensive exhibits hall showcasing the newest in nutrition, food and medical nutrition therapy products and resources in the marketplace.
The three-day program is a collection of innovative, important and timely topics to support your practice, such as:
- Cannabinoid biochemistry for health and wellness
- Nutrition and Dietetics in a Post-Truth Era
- Ketogenic diet as medical therapy and a lifestyle
- Diet for gastrointestinal conditions: translating research into practice
- Sustainable food systems in Canada
- The pivotal role of nutrition in mental health
Fittingly, the Conference this year is themed, “Capitalizing on our Connections”, and there are multiple opportunities to meet with peers – both in a learning and a social setting. New this year will be an opportunity to hold a Braindate © with fellow delegates. Braindates © are one-on-one or small group meetings that you book with other participants based on shared interests. Everyone has valuable knowledge and experience to share; Braindates © help you tap into the collective genius at the Conference and meaningfully connect with one another. And outside of the learning opportunities, DC Practice Networks
have set up evening socials to build stronger connections across the country (and around the globe).
