Dietitians NZ Media Policy

Communication between Dietitians NZ and the media and public is vital if the public is to access our 'services' and understand the work and philosophy of the Association and its members. Dietitians NZ is dedicated to promoting a positive image of its membership, achievements, sector and services.

Dietitians NZ is also keen to highlight new science and promote accurate, evidence based information to the media on emerging topics in nutrition science, positioning Dietitians as the leading experts in the field of nutrition and health.

Our three key objectives:

· To actively respond, in a timely, efficient and accurate manner, to media queries and issues regarding nutrition and dietetic matters.

· To proactively profile the expertise, initiatives, activities and achievements of our members.

· To actively combat misinformation regarding nutrition and dietetic matters in a timely, efficient and accurate manner.
