Whereas Dietetics is defined as “The art and science anxious with the guideline of the usual food and drink of a person as it narrates to health and hygiene, ration to sustain it in its presence, promoting growth, swapping loss, and providing liveliness”.

The organizing and scientific committee of the conference schedules the scientific program so as to offer variety and diversity of subjects in order to emphasize the role of the dietitian in the whole spectrum of health and community and the necessity to be considered an indispensable member of the health care team and the health care providers.

The three day conference covers subjects by an international and local faculty of experts. The subjects have been selected to give a broad and in depth overview of a number of contemporary and traditional topics in dietetics and nutrition.

The conference will offer CME/CPE hours.
