CPD: What, When & Why?

Happy New Year to all our followers! Finally, 2020 is over! We have a bit longer to go before life returns to some sense of normality but we can start the new year with our professional development taking centre stage.

As AfN Registrants, we are obliged to undertake Continued Professional Development (CPD) to maintain our skills and knowledge. This is important to keep abreast of the fast moving nature of nutrition science and policy. It is also important to develop our networks and skills in ways that allows us to use and share evidence-based advice and information to the best of our ability.

Join us on Tuesday 19th January 2021, 8-9pm (UK time) to get lots of advice on CPD. Whether you are a student, new graduate, ANutr or RNutr, you’ll find our CPD very useful for keeping on top of your CPD. We are joined by guest moderator Dr. Glenys Jones RNutr from the Association for Nutrition.
