On 29 and 30 September 2017 the European Federation of the Association of Dietitians (EFAD) organizes its annual conference in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. The theme of the 10th EFAD conference is ‘The future is now’. Part of the program is a parallel session on sports nutrition.
The 10th EFAD conference offers a full programme and the opportunity to meet and network with dietitians across Europe. “The theme of the conference is ‘The future is now’ because thinking ahead is one of the strengths of EFAD”, says Annemieke van Ginkel – Honorary Vice President of EFAD.
EFAD’s ambition is to offer the leading congress on nutrition and dietetics in Europe, bringing together practitioners, researchers and strategists. Annemieke van Ginkel invites dietitians to come to the EFAD conference to gain more insight into the European perspective on nutrition, networking in an international setting and sharing knowledge in the field of nutrition and dietetics. And besides that, Rotterdam is the city of the future and the place to be!
