British Dietetic Association and Motor Neurone Disease Association enter partnership05 September 2016
The BDA is pleased to announce the creation of a formal partnership with the Motor Neurone Disease Association, the UK’s only national charity focused on MND care, research and campaigning. The Memorandum of Understanding builds on the already excellent working relationship between our two organisations and sets out a commitment to joint working up to 2020. The MOU has been jointly signed by BDA Chief Executive Andy Burman and MND Association Chief Executive Sally Light.
The BDA’s Neuroscience Specialist Group, chaired by Kwunita Man RD, will be leading on the partnership for the BDA and fostering further collaboration between the two organisations.
Kwunita Man said:
“We are delighted to be further strengthening our ties with the MND Association and providing more support to people living with MND. Good nutrition is important to MND patients and dietitians have an important role to play in advising on suitable diets to help maintain weight, nutritional status and help with considering longer term nutrition plans".
