Since establishment in 1994, the Malaysian Dietitians' Association (MDA) serves as a platform to represent dietitians who work in hospitals, foodservice, universities, government, public health, business and industry, as well as fitness and health Centre in Malaysia in order to achieve our shared vision and mission.
By establishing partnership and collaboration, MDA assists many companies and organisations to reach respective dietetic professionals and most credible nutrition information. Likewise, with the corporate support to the MDA's strategic plan and their commitment in promoting healthy living and evidence-based practice, MDA can increase its capacity to deliver accurate, practical, and up-to-date nutrition information to the Malaysian nation, support national public nutrition education programmes, promote awareness of MDA and its Ordinary Members (dietitians) as the most trustable nutrition information providers, and support MDA member services particularly continuing professional development.
There are numerous ways to support MDA activities. It includes the MDA National Conference, CPD seminars and workshops, MDA awards, MDA resources (e.g. newsletter and E-Updates) and public nutrition education programmes.
