Dear respected Dietitian, Health Professional, Academician and Colleagues,

In December 2016, United Arab Emirates President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan declared 2017 as The Year of Giving. Three key pillars for ‘giving’ will be highlighted throughout the year: Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Volunteering, Serving the nation. In accordance to the above, on behalf of the organising and scientific committee it is with great pleasure we announce the 3rd Annual Dubai Nutrition Conference 2017 which is scheduled from 26th – 28th October 2017 at the Intercontinental Hotel - Festival City- Dubai-UAE.

Dubai Nutrition Conference has become one of the largest platform within the field of Clinical Nutrition in MENA region which is organised by Dubai Health Authority, Clinical Nutrition Department.

In the past two editions of 2015 and 2016, we have successfully hosted over 1200 delegates in total with over 100 renowned faculty from across the globe which has made DNC the most interesting Nutrition conference in the region. This year the conference, over the course of three days, will include a wide range of scientific sessions of two tracks: clinical and community nutrition and food science with parallel workshops; pre-courses; poster competition that highlight the implications of nutrition and dietetics and recent advances in the research. Taking the credential forward and to be recognised as the best Nutrition meeting the committee is very pleased to inform the collaboration this year with American Society for Parenteral & Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) who are considered as the best content provider in terms of practices, research and studies.

ASPEN will open an exclusive track within DNC 2017 with an international ASPEN accreditation therefore we would like to encourage all our participants to attend and receive the reward as well as the best knowledge from prominent speakers of ASPEN

Looking forward to your attendance at the 3rd Dubai Nutrition Conference to gain insights from the educational sessions as well as ASPEN workshop, trust that you will enjoy the conference and assuring yet another exciting and memorable event
