The Board of Directors was honoured to announce Kelly Anne Erdman, MSc, RD as the 2015 Ryley-Jeffs Memorial Lecture Award recipient.
From the onset of the establishment of the first Canadian Sport Centre, Kelly Anne has lobbied for nutrition support for athletes as a part of the sport science and medical team. Included in Kelly Anne’s career highlights over the years has been her opportunity to work at three Games for the Canadian Olympic Committee as the Performance Dietitian for Team Canada athletes – 2011 Pan American Games, 2012 London Summer Olympics, and the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.
Kelly Anne’s nutrition career spans nearly three decades, during which time she has developed programs and curriculum for a previously unchartered area. She is a true pioneer in her field and is eager to help other dietitians apply the practical knowledge she has acquired.
A version of Kelly Anne's lecture is available in the Fall issue of the Canadian Journal of Dietetic Practice and Research.
