It has been said if you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go together.
Welcome to Dietitian Connection, the one-stop shop for passionate nutrition leaders.
DC is the brainchild of Dr Maree Ferguson, who founded it in 2012 and today serves as its director. It’s also the result of a dream come true for her.
Maree’s passion was always to help dietitians achieve their professional dreams — but fear of failure and losing her job security held her back from acting.
In 2011, she heard the author of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series, Jack Canfield, speak at the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics conference. His motivational words changed Maree’s life, and gave her the push to launch her own business the following year.
Today, Dietitian Connection is a vibrant community of like-minded professionals seeking to engage, inspire and educate one another. We’ve become the trusted daily source of inspiration and learning for busy nutrition leaders — like you.
But most exciting of all, at DC, we’re taking our profession to the next level. Our members’ shared passion for nutrition and health is now inspiring real, actionable change — for the good of our clients. And when you join DC, you’ll become part of this movement for change.
Our five core values form the crux of Dietitian Connection. We aim to inspire you. To connect you with like-minded colleagues. To innovate and push you out of your comfort zone. To create robust debate. And to encourage lifelong learning.
