Nutrition:  Past, Present, Future 

The Nutrition Society of South Africa (NSSA) and the Association for Dietetics in South Africa (ADSA) look forward to you joining us in Muldersdrift for the Nutrition Congress 2018.  The Northern branch of the NSSA and North-West branch of ADSA are proud to be hosting delegates for this congress from the 5th to the 7thSeptember 2018 at The Misty Hills Conference centre.  The venue is conveniently situated, as it is only a 15-minute drive from Lanseria airport and is near the Cradle of Humankind.

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.

Please save this date!

CCSSA Congress 2018

On behalf of the South African Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (SASPEN), we are pleased to invite you to Durban from 23 – 26 August 2018, as we once again join the Critical Care Society of Southern Africa (CCSSA) at their annual congress. This joint venture will once again offer members of the multiprofessional and multidisciplinary ICU team the opportunity to discuss and learn about the most recent research and developments in the field of critical care medicine and nutrition, as well as to meet up with old colleagues, and to make new friends. Built on last year’s success, SASPEN will also offer delegates the opportunity to improve their nutrition knowledge by attending the European Society for Nutrition and Metabolism (ESPEN)’s Life Long Learning (LLL) Nutrition Courses in the form a pre-congress workshop. Furthermore, with interdisciplinarity under the spotlight, members of the multidisciplinary team will find a broad range of interdisciplinary sessions in the main scientific programme where the different disciplines can join to explore topics of interest to all.
So come join us in Durban for the CCSSA/SASPEN 2018 Congress! We look forward to sharing this unique event and experiencing the beautiful surrounds of Durban with you!

Yours sincerely,
