But first, how about this for a title?

Lecturer in Nutrition and Dietetics

This forum, through its panel members, will have a detailed look at aged care cookery and the changes it has undergone in recent years – and where it is heading. It will encourage those currently working in hospitality who wish to create positive impact (or those who would like to); either to understand how to improve the consumer experience through the use of food, taking in considerations of budget, health outcomes and social wellbeing.
