Infuse Issue 6 December 2018 | Page 5

The success of Infuse has continued this year, and the overwhelming passion from our readers has encouraged us to search high and low, for unique content from around the world. With personalities like dietitian and model Maye Musk, celebrity chef Jamie Oliver, Business Chicks CEO Olivia Ruello, international boxing champion Jeff Horn and his dietitian Sav Manolis, and the widely acclaimed and successful Joy Bauer RD having graced our covers this year, we’ve seen readership grow not only in Australia and New Zealand, but also in the USA, Canada, UK, Europe and Asia. Having recently returned from the 2018 Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Food and Nutrition Conference and Expo (FNCE) in Washington D.C., I’m truly excited for everything 2019 will hold. So in saying farewell to the year that has passed and looking forward to the year ahead, I share this personal takeaway from the conference from inspirational keynote opening speaker, Bonnie St John, the first African American Paralympics medallist… "Everybody falls down. Winners get up and gold medal winners get up faster." Maree PS. On behalf of the global DC team, I’d like to wish all our readers, a wonderful and safe festive season. © Dietitian Connection 5 Reaching 10,000 followers on Social Media in May, 2018 Image of Maree, Kate and Laura. Thank you and Best Wishes I would also like to express my deepest gratitude to Laura Byrne, who has been with DC since almost the beginning, for everything she has contributed to DC to make it such the vibrant successful community it is today. Laura has stepped down from the role as Infuse editor to spend more time with her young family. Laura, I will be forever indebted and we miss you! Infuse | December 2018
