“Dietitian Life was created to better support, develop and connect dietitians across Australia and the World. It is a platform created by dietitians, for dietitians with a mission to lead and inspire the future of dietetics. We want to help dietitians to provide better strategies, care and communication to their clients through authentic insights, learned experiences and actionable advice.
Your university taught you the science, and now we want to teach you how to apply it in the real world to get the best results you can with your clients. We want to teach you “How To Dietitian”.
We know that if we all work together, share our knowledge and experience with each other to get the best results, we can start to be recognised and valued as the go-to nutrition experts all over the World.”
