Thérèse Libert – France
  • The 17th ICD in the beautiful city of Granada in Spain was an opportunity for dietitians from 45 countries around the world to meet with the same objective of moving dietetics forward. We benefitted from an excellent scientific program under the theme “Going to sustainable eating”.   
    It was an enriching experience to hear about professional practices from all around the world. It was not only an opportunity to gain knowledge from research and practice in other countries, but also to present our actions. Our president, Isabelle Parmentier, presented the role of dietitians in the nutrition policies in France, and Florence Rossi, presented a nutrition research project on oral nutritional supplements in geriatrics. 
    In addition to the congress, we visited the Alhambra Palace which is really "one of the wonders of the world"!!  It was a fantastic experience!   
    We highly recommend this event to all dietitians and students of dietetics.  The next one will be in 2020 in South Africa. Take note!
