Event description

Description

Your Exchange Planning Committee is very pleased to present "Advancing public health policy: speak up for nutrition!" - ODPH Nutrition Exchange 2019.


WHY YOU SHOULD ATTEND

Trying to decide which professional development event to attend this year? You definitely will not want to miss out on the Exchange because we have worked diligently to ensure the agenda is relevant to all RDs working in public health! Our planners have put together a great line-up of powerhouse speakers from very diverse backgrounds but all share a passion for advocacy. Highlights include: Michelle Allison (aka The Fat Nutritionist), Jennifer Buccino from Dietitians of Canada, Rachel Prowse from Public Health Ontario, Mary L'Abbe from the University of Toronto, Joëlle Favreau from Nourish Peterborough, Dr Rosana Salvaterra, PPH MOH, plus an esteemed panel of your ODPH colleagues. To make sure you get the best bang for your buck, we have asked our presenters to provide practical take-home messages that you can apply to your public heath nutrition practice. Our draft agenda will be available soon. Be sure to check back regularly for updates.
