Dietitians from Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust will be in Cannock town centre on Thursday 6 June as part of Dietitians Week.

Dietitians Week is the British Dietetic Association's annual celebration of dietitians, dietetics and those that work to support them. This year the focus is on talking about #WhatDietitiansDo to explain the diversity within the dietetic profession. Dietitian’s Week 2019 runs from 3rd – 7th June 2019.

The Specialist Adult Dietetic Service which is part of the Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust will be manning a stand so the public can find out more about the services provided.  There are prizes up for grabs, so pop along and meet staff from the service.

Dietitians work in a huge range of fields, from the NHS, public health and social care to industry, the media and academia. They support patients with all kinds of medical conditions, including obesity, malnutrition, cancer, renal disease, stroke, HIV, diabetes, dementia and eating disorders to name just a few. 

Liz Humphreys, Advanced Dietitian Team Lead said “Polling undertaken for the British Dietetic Association by Populus has shown that nearly 40% of the public want access to a dietitian for advice on healthy eating. Poor diet is now the biggest single risk factor for poor health, more so even than smoking.  We hope people will come along on Thursday to find out more about what we do”.
