Alberta and Territories



 
As an Alberta and Territories member, there's a lot you can look forward to this year as we build on the sucesses of 2019. Alberta and Territories members actively contribute to an engaged and vibrant dietitian community across our large and diverse region. Members from Alberta and each of the Territories, all areas of practice and students, new professionals and experienced dietitians support important issues to the profession while bringing unique and relevant perspectives. We are fortunate to have strong leadership and engagement amongst students and faculty at the University of Alberta ensuring an important connection of these members to the profession. I welcome all members to get in touch with me if you'd like to take part in regional activities.
