On 3 May we joined together to say thank you to the Dietetic Support Workforce, recognising the vital work you do, holding up our profession and supporting service users every day.
We had a webinar on the day, to launch some exciting new resources for the Dietetic Support Workforce. Missed it? Don't worry, you can watch it back here:
We also took to social media with videos from the BDA's very own Dietetic Support Workforce Representative, Ashton Fairweather and BDA CEO, Liz Stockley sharing messages about the day.
We'd love to introduce you to your new Dietetic Support Workforce Rep on the BDA Board of Directors, Ashton Fairweather!— British Dietetic Association (BDA) (@BDA_Dietitians) May 3, 2023
