Hon. , Minister of Health, Environment, Culture and Housing, noted that dietary needs and nutrition play an integral role in our health and well-being.

“By bringing together experts from a variety of fields, we aim to provide healthcare professionals the opportunity to develop their knowledge of nutrition and its implications on health to ultimately create a better experience for their patients. This conference also offers a wealth of knowledge to members of the wider community to educate themselves on ways to utilise food to support the health and wellness of themselves their families and clients. I am pleased to say that once again we can provide a conference with such a high caliber of presenters and educational information without any registration cost to the public”.
