Our significant media presence be impossible without our volunteer spokespeople. They provide a media presence across the printed word, online and on the TV and radio. Our spokespeople represent the BDA and the dietetic profession, often at short notice throughout the year on a wide range of topics. 

This award recognises a spokesperson who has gone above and beyond in their role, by tackling difficult or high-profile stories or through providing consistent high-quality support.
