NUTRITION AND DIETETICS: NEW FRONTIERS FOR DELIVERING HEALTH TO AUSTRALIANS

Join with us as we celebrate the golden anniversary of nutrition and dietetics at the University of Sydney. We remember the health services dietitians have delivered for the past 50 years while exploring the new frontiers of delivering better nutrition to halt escalating chronic disease in Australia. Diet is the second leading cause of chronic disease in Australia but as smoking declines it will quickly become the number one modifiable factor to save morbidity and mortality.
