Dietitians Day - Friday 30 September 2022

It's time to champion yourself and those who help shape your dietitian story

The theme '#ProudToBe an APD' is all about reflecting upon why you do it, thanking those who help and celebrating how far you have come.

Celebrating your voice – thanks for sharing it

Whether you’re just beginning your APD journey, or you’re well into your career – the title ‘dietitian’ means something different to everybody. On Dietitians Day, we want to acknowledge what it means to you.  

We’ll be actively sharing your #ProudtoBe stories on social media and helping you recognise those who feature in your dietitian story. Take part in Dietitians Day to pat yourself on the back and reflect on the growing you have done.
