SASPEN TALK MAY 2018


Welcome to the first edition of SASPEN Talk. Here you will find updates on important SASPEN news, exciting upcoming events, and important dates to remember. SASPEN Talk will also seek to bring you up to date with new developments and trends in the field of clinical nutrition, both in South Africa and elsewhere, and getting to know our SASPEN-community better. As this year marks the 30th anniversary of our Society we also invited Prof Demetre Labadarios to share a few words in our very first edition of SASPEN Talk. We sincerely hope you will enjoy reading this edition, and look forward to many more editions in future.

SASPEN TALK AUGUST 2018


It’s time for the second edition of the newsletter. The year is descending to a close quicker than anyone of us could imagine. There have been several activities this last quarter which we will highlight in this edition.  It is inspiring to see how involved dietitians are becoming in uplifting the profession and to improve the perception of dietetics amongst our colleagues as well as the public. Well done to all of you! Let’s keep on fighting the good fight with integrity, knowledge and professionalism.
