All companies must hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) where the company accounts are reported. The BDA’s AGM is also an opportunity for members to hear about the achievements of the last 12 months and hear any important news about the strategic direction of the Association.
Our next AGM will be online - Wednesday 7 July 2021, read the agenda.
Registration for the AGM will open soon
This year’s Elsie Widdowson lecture 'Diversity and inclusion in Dietetics – where we are and where we need to be' will be delivered by Susan Price, Deputy Director (Inclusion, Health and Wellbeing, Social Cohesion and Cultural Development) and Critical Care Dietitian.
Susan graduated from Robert Gordon University in 1995 and she undertook her first role at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham working in elderly care. Her career has then stayed in the West Midlands/Black Country where she has worked in a wide range of adult clinical areas in both acute and in community services. Susan also spent time as a Sports Dietitian where she worked with footballers, horse riders and ballerinas and has been part of the BDA PR committee where she has been active both locally and nationally.
After a career break where she went travelling in the Southern Hemisphere, she took up a post as a Research Dietitian at The University of Birmingham looking into sarcopenia in older people and it was during this time that she completed her Master’s Degree in Health Care Sciences.
Following this she came back to work at Selly Oak hospital where she was appointed to the role of Deputy Head of Service and her clinical role was in Gastroenterology and in Critical Care during the period of the Afghanistan war.
She was appointed to be the Head of Nutrition and Dietetics at University Hospital Birmingham where she continued with her clinical work in Critical Care (Trauma and Cardio Thoracics) and gastroenterology. In 2020, Susan was appointed to the role of Deputy Director (Inclusion, Health and Wellbeing, Social Cohesion and Cultural Development) and she still continues her clinical work in Critical Care.
Susan enjoys running and has completed the London Marathon twice!
