The California Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Annual Conference is the premier conference for food and nutrition professionals in California. The annual three-day event provides education sessions focused on practical application of research, insights into emerging research and trends, exposure to new products and services, awards and recognition for members from various practice areas, special sessions for students, and face-to-face networking—all essential for advancing careers.

Due to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak and related travel restrictions place on our California Healthcare Providers, Schools and Universities, and federal state and local recommendations during this uncertain time, the CA Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Board of Directors, has made the very difficult decision to move the CANDAC20 Conference to a Virtual to be held between April 14, 2020 and May 15, 2020. Details of the schedule will be provided as soon as they are available. We understand that many California Dietitians count on our programs for your CEUs and we are committed to ensuring access.

With growing evidence that COVID-19 can be transmitted quickly and easily, and an increasing number of organizations and institutions implementing travel bans, the justification to move to virtual conference.
