Dietitians Week

Dietitians Week, established and organised by the British Dietetic Association (BDA), first took place from 9-13 June 2014, and again from 8-12 June 2015 and from 6-10 June 2016. The Week was initially established in conjunction with the BDA’s campaign Trust a Dietitian to highlight the work and worth of dietitians and the impact of the dietetic profession in the UK and continues to be an annual awareness raising week.

Dietitians Week 2017

Our fourth annual Dietitians Week will be running from June 12-16 2017. Our theme this year will be “Evidence and Expertise”, and aims to highlight the importance of an evidence based approach to nutrition whilst showing that dietitians are the best placed interpreters of nutrition evidence. The week will also be an opportunity to promote positive messages about diet and nutrition to counter the nonsense, fads and pseudoscience that unfortunately continue to garner shares and column inches.

As with our previous years we will be working with partners to showcase the value of dietetics and dietitians, including our colleagues at Sense about Science. We hope that all our members will join in as enthusiastically as in previous years and take part on social media, organise local events and get their colleagues, stakeholders and local media involved. We want this year to be the biggest and best Dietitians Week yet!

We’re very excited to announce that we’ll also be holding a special event following the BDA AGM in Leeds on Monday 12 June, with high profile speakers discussing the importance of an evidence based approach to nutrition and the problems associated with bad food and diet advice. This promises to be a really exciting occasion, so watch this space for more details on the venue, speakers, and how you can join us!

We’ll be updating these pages with more information on the week over the course of the next couple of months. This will include where you can order or download your Dietitians Week Pack, as well as more information on the social media and press campaigns. 

Using the Dietitians Week 2017 logo

We'd really like Dietitians Week 2017 supporters to feel able to use the logo to promote the awareness week far and wide and to show you are proud to be a dietitian and support the profession. You can let your imagination run wild and think up different ways where you may want to use the logo. From just having it pinned on your notice board, to having the logo printed onto a t-shirt, the options are endless! Or, simply add it to your website with a hyperlink to www.dietitiansweek.co.uk

Here are a few tips on best use of the logo

  • Please don’t change the colours, or the design of the logo itself. We want to keep the campaign branding consistent.
  • If you are changing the size of the logo, to fit it on your T-shirt for example, don’t change its shape as it will look distorted. You can usually re-size it while maintaining the original shape by clicking and dragging the corners (not the top/bottom/sides)
  • We are happy for you to use the logo alongside other logos. For example, if you are having a joint meeting with another organisation.
  • Please don’t use the logo for commercial purposes.

Many thanks!
