The BDA Honours recognise and reward BDA members who go above and beyond, those who inspire others and are making a real difference.

Fellowship is the highest honour which the Association can bestow upon a member in recognition of their achievements. Fellowship of the Association was first awarded in 1979 and more than 100 Fellowships have been awarded since. 

The Ibex is an honour for Professional Achievement created to thank individuals who have made significant contributions to the profession either locally or in a dietetic specialism.

Find out how to nominate someone for a Fellowship or an Ibex.
