David Wiss MS RDN presents at CDA 2015

CDA 2015

The California Dietetic Association (CDA) Annual Conference and Exhibition will be held at the Riverside Convention Center Thursday April 9th 2015 through Saturday April 11th 2015. Registered Dietitian Nutritionist David Wiss will be speaking on Saturday April 11th 2015. The title of his presentation will be “Nutrition in Recovery: The Role of the Dietitian in Addiction Treatment” and will essentially describe all of the possible functions and duties of a dietitian in addiction treatment. Southern California is considered one of the “meccas” of private sector addiction treatment, and Mr. Wiss envisions an era where dietitians are a required component of addiction treatment. Most of the information presented at CDA 2015 will be a reflection of the work David has done as Director of Nutrition at Breathe Life Healing Centers in Los Angeles. Mr. Wiss has presented on this topic before but will be bringing cutting-edge experience and insight into this years presentation. View his old presentation HERE
