We’ve got another stellar podcast lined up, this time with Rachel Parfitt – APD and creator & founder of The Nutrition Playground in Brisbane, Australia. Our host this week is Kate Agnew; this podcast is particularly geared toward student dietitians and new grads (congrats!). We get chatting about entrepreneurship and the business side of dietetics. Rachel gives us some top notch tips on how to start a nutrition business and what to keep in mind once it’s off the ground. We learn about Rachel’s balancing act of multiple jobs as well as lessons from Rachel’s journey.
Hosted by Glen Cardwell, this week we talk to Prof Jane Scott, AdvAPD, FDAA and Research Professor, School of Public Health, Curtin University, Perth. Jane is an internationally recognised researcher in infant feeding practices. We talk about her journey through Scotland; the start of breastfeeding rights for woman. We discuss Jane’s previous work with the United Nations and her current infant feeding research focussed on supporting fathers. In this episode, we talk about dietitians leading the research and contributing to the evidence base as a way forward.
