Dear friends & colleagues,
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the 14th EFAD Congress (12-14 October 2023), in Budapest, the vibrant capital city of Hungary.
This year’s theme is “Dietetic care, a human right: moving forward into a new era’’.
We are excited by this opportunity to connect again in person, bringing together more than 450 European dietitians from 30 European countries, to networking, exchange knowledge, learn from each other and have lots of fun, as well! You wouldn’t want to miss this vital meeting.
EFAD again feels privileged to organize THE pan-European dietetic congress. Over the past years EFAD brought fundamental topics to the table to endorse the dietetic workforce and showcase nutrition and dietetics on the map with the WHO and other key stakeholders. The Budapest resolution (2022) enabled EFAD to show its impact in Europe as the future story for dietitians unfolds.
The two-day scientific programme is being finalised, and it will offer all the latest evidence-based information on nutrition and dietetics across the lifespan. New topics have been integrated within the program, including Equality, diversity, and inclusion in dietetics and a holistic approach to healthcare. Last but not least the Fellowship lecture will be presented.
We strongly encourage you to actively contribute by showcasing your work. Abstracts for poster sessions or oral presentation/ can be submitted soon. So, stay tuned for more information.
We look forward meeting you at the 14th EFAD Congress in Budapest as we further explore Dietetic care, as a human right.
Annemieke van Ginkel-Res
Honorary President EFAD
