Dietitians of Canada
The theme of the 2021 Conference is Building Bridges – Bâtir des ponts.
The rising sun in the conference logo symbolizes the change happening in our profession, while the outstretched hands represent the need for connection, communication, and action. Bridges need to be built – across generations, across issues, across race and gender – so that we can move forward as a supportive, diverse, and inclusive professional community.
The DC National Conference 2021 will be a 100% virtual, multi-day event in light of uncertainty in the timing of vaccine distribution and the possibility that public health measures may still need to be in place in May 2021. This year’s event will bring the DC community together for networking, learning, and meetings using an innovative virtual event platform.
We are excited to create unique opportunities for engagement and interaction among attendees, as well as a central place to experience conference programming. Live sessions will take place weekly on Wednesdays between 12:00pm and 3:00pm EST from May 5 to June 30, 2021. A full schedule, including additional events and activities, will be announced in early 2021.
Registration opens on Tuesday, January 12, 2021, with Super Early Bird pricing available until January 31, 2021.
