Dear HKNA Members,
Please accept my heartfelt thanks for your continuous support to the Association and it is my honor to be elected as the President of HKNA in the year of 2016-17. In the past year we had been partnered with local government and different stakeholders to promote healthy eating in the local community, and visit Beijing, Taichung and Kuala Lumpar and exchange with nutrition experts there.
In the coming days, HKNA will continue to work with local government, academic institutes, non-governmental organizations and professional bodies to promote nutrition knowledge to general public and to clarify any misinformation related to nutrition. To uphold the professionalism and professional integrity, we will keep on organizing high quality continuing education activities and deterring any malpractice within our profession. We will maintain our excellent network and partnership with the national and regional nutrition and dietetic organizations and support professional exchange with local and foreign experts. We are also exploring the means to promote the capacity and the role of nutritionists in the local community.
HKNA has been working closely with you more than three decades in public health promotion and professional development. We do believe that your contribution would be crucial to the health of local population and the success of our profession. Looking forward to see you in the coming events.
President, 2016 – 2017
Hong Kong Nutrition Association
