Dietitians Week 2021 will be taking place from 7 - 11 June 2021. We're working hard on make this another fantastic celebration of dietitians, dietetic support workers and RD2B, with some new twists on our favourite Dietitians Week activities and a particular focus on celebrating the diversity of our members. 

Themes

This year we're going to be focusing on a number of different themes throughout the week, and hope there will be something for all our members. Some of the themes we want to cover include:

  • Celebrating the diversity of the dietetic profession - reflecting on the different backgrounds and experiences of our members.
  • Focusing on dietetic careers - encouraging more people (both young and old!) to consider a career in dietetics.
  • RD2B, Dietetic Assistants and DIetetic Support Workers - celebrating the important contributions of all parts of the dietetic workforce.
  • Promoting public health messages - targetting information on the dietetic and nutrition topics in which the public are most interested. 

If you have any other ideas, or think you could contribute to our diversity or patient stories, please get in touch: dietitiansweek@bda.uk.com 

Packs

Although we hope that by June the UK will be heading out of lockdown and COVID-19 will be abating, we have taken the decision not to provide hard copy packs again this year because there is so much uncertainty about whether events will be possible in healthcare premises. We still intend to provide downloadable resources for use online, and hope to provide resources that can be used beyond Dietitians Week.
