Dietitians Week is the BDA's annual celebration of dietitians, dietetics and those that work to support them. In June 2019 we focused on #WhatDietitiansDo to explain the diversity within the dietetic profession and make the case for more investment in dietetic services.
Polling undertaken for us by Populus showed that nearly 40% of the public want access to a dietitian for advice on healthy eating, but only 10% are able to do so. We believe the case for more investment in dietetics is strong - especially as poor diet is now the biggest single risk factor for poor health, more so even that smoking.
What did we do on Social Media?
