Chirag Jivanji

I joined the council to strengthen the impact and influence dietitians have on the health and wellbeing of the people of Aotearoa. My interest in leadership and project management helps me keep the big picture in mind and work with others towards a common goal.

I currently work at Palmerston North Hospital as a surgical, intensive care, and nutrition support dietitian. I grew up with my Indian family in central Auckland and completed dietetics training at the University of Auckland in 2017. My hobbies include boxing, skiing, and cooking.
