CFDR Research Showcase for 2020

 

Over the past month we have been keeping a very close watch of the news and the direction from Canadian Public Health officials and governments at all levels regarding COVID-19. After careful consideration for the safety and health of conference delegates, speakers and the public, we regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 National Conference in June.
 
The annual DC National Conference is a very important event for the association and for Canadian dietitians, and our primary concern is to support our member community through this moment in time.
 
On a positive note, we are actively working to bring you select elements of the Conference virtually. Many of our speakers have very graciously agreed to do presentations by distance, and the popular Braindates will be continuing. Plans are in the works and we will share more details as soon as possible.  

 
Early Bird Abstracts
 

The Early Bird abstract process is complete and all authors have been notified of the status of their submissions.
 
Despite the cancellation of the National Conference for 2020 in Saskatoon, the abstracts will be published in the Fall issue of the Canadian Journal of Dietetic Practice and Research.
 
DC and CFDR will be actively working to bring some elements of the Conference virtually and this may include an opportunity for virtual presentations of the Early Bird abstracts.
 
Plans are in the works and we will share more details as soon as possible.  

 
Late Breaking Abstracts
 

Despite the cancellation of the National Conference for 2020 in Saskatoon, the Late Breaking abstract submission and peer review process will continue.  All accepted abstracts will be posted to the CFDR website in the Summer of 2020.  There will NOT be an opportunity for virtual presentations of the Late Breaking abstracts.
