It is my great pleasure to welcome you again to MDA’s National Conference which is entering into our 26th year of organising another round of updates and sharing. The theme this year is extremely relevant – Dietetics in Aging and the Elderly.
The Malaysian population of older adults is predicted to grow rapidly over the next decade. Simultaneously, advancements in medical care and improved awareness of healthy lifestyles have led to longer life expectancies. Dietitians play a pivotal role in providing the right nutrition care to promote healthy and functional living among older adults.
Hence, our scientific programme will be filled with relevant topics that will enhance dietetics practices when providing medical nutrition therapy for the elderly with both chronic and acute diseases. We also will discuss topics related to diet and lifestyle management that will impact the aging process across the lifespan. We will have plenary lectures, symposiums and skills workshops as well as both oral and poster free paper presentations and case studies. This year, we will continue to invite dietitians to showcase innovations they created or used in daily practice.
Do REGISTER EARLY and SEE YOU AT THE CONFERENCE!
