Your festive EFAD Newsflash!







Dear all, 

2020 has been a difficult year, with many of you facing challenges that could not even have been imagined a year ago. New words came into our lives, such as social distancing, face masks, reproduction rates, COVID-19, Teams, Zoom, Webex, etc.

But these difficulties also brought opportunities and new experiences. Especially in meeting each other online, what a learning curve! Webinars, conferences and meetings online all went well!

And EFAD has had more successes:

  • Our online General Meeting
  • Launch of the EFAD online journal Kompass Nutrition & Dietetics (story below)
  • Our collaborations with WHO, European Commission, ESPEN, and EASO
  • The COVID resources on the EFAD website continue to increase
  • The contribution of over 200 volunteers to numerous committees, actions and projects
  • The continued support of our members and stakeholders, without which EFAD could not continue to be “the Voice of European Dietetics”

So as 2020 draws to an end I would like, on behalf of the EFAD Executive Committee, to wish everyone in the EFAD network a safe and healthy festive season, and the hope that 2021 will bring a return to some kind of normality and we can meet again in person!

Stay healthy and enjoy time with (limited amounts of) family and friends.

Warm regards,

Annemieke van Ginkel-Res
EFAD Honorary President

Season's Greetings from the EFAD Executive Committee and secretariat!



EFAD launches journal for European Dietitians in collaboration with Karger

The first issue of the new Kompass Nutrition & Dietetics is out now and focuses on COVID-19.

A partnership between EFAD and Karger Publishers, 
Kompass Nutrition & Dietetics will be published twice per year in a digital format: in Fall/Winter and in Spring. Each issue will be dedicated to a thematic focus and will be free to access for members of all EFAD's member organisations.

The theme for the first issue is COVID-19 and nutrition, delivering interesting insight into the correlation between nutrition effects and the immune system.

Click here to find out more about the first ever issue - and access a number of articles immediately!
