Dear students and colleagues
The University of Cape Town (UCT) is hosting a special memorial service to honour the memory of our fallen colleague Professor Bongani Mayosi on Thursday, 2 August 2018, from 15:30 for 16:00 in Memorial Hall.
Congratulations to the final year dietetics students who completed the course in 'Basic communication in isiXhosa'!
The theme for the 2018 congress is Nutrition: Past, Present, Future. The local organising committee is aiming to create a platform for nutrition professionals in South Africa to acknowledge the past successes in nutrition and to remember lessons learnt. We want to showcase the nutrition-related activities (from science to implementation) that are ongoing in our beautiful country and of course plan for a better nutrition future for all South Africans. We really hope you are able to join us as we create the opportunity to meet up with colleagues from your past and build on future relationships.
With the vast majority of the world’s hungry living in developing countries, local solutions are required to address all the sustainable development goals in order to transform our world and create “The Future We Want”. Food security and food safety are critical issues internationally, this forum will allow world leaders in this field to engage in high level research conversations enabling South Africa to showcase innovation and indigenous knowledge in this field of research thereby strengthening international collaboration.
