This award is to recognise a rising star who has been in dietetics for ten years or less who have created a significant impact in the profession, in the early stages of their careers.

This award is not about young versus old, it is to acknowledge, celebrate and recognise the achievements of a member at the beginning of their career - shining a spotlight on their success and championing the profession.

This award is open for applications and nominations.

Eirini is a leading dietitian and researcher in the field of diet and gut health and disease. Despite only graduating from her BSc in Nutrition and Dietetics ten years ago, her work has not only advanced the understanding of the role of diet in gut health and disease, but has also shaped future dietitians and championed the role of dietitians in patients’ care.
