What went on ...

On 14 & 15 March we enjoyed two days full of inspiring talks at BDA Live. The audience gained CPD whilst enjoying talks by expert speakers focusing on the current and future issues facing the dietetic profession. Four of our specialist groups hosted excellent breakout sessions covering a range of topics plus a variety of sponsors showcasing up-to-date products and services.

Take some time to check out the posters displays and overview of the sessions too!
