Speakers Bureau

Welcome to the Vegetarian Nutrition Dietetic Practice Group Speakers Bureau.

The Speakers Bureau provides a database of VN DPG members who possess expert speaking experience on a wide array of plant-based nutrition issues and are willing to prepare and speak on a variety of topics related to their experience and expertise. The goal of the program is to increase the visibility of VN DPG, and to disseminate evidence-based information on plant-based nutrition. The objectives have expanded in the recent years to align with the mission, vision, and strategic plan of the DPG. In the past year, our speakers have not only presented at Academy affiliate meetings, but they have also spoken at various health and nutrition conferences across the country and internationally.
