Postgraduate & Early Career Nutrition Conference

The Postgraduate and Early Career Nutrition Conference (PGECN Conference) is a one-day conference for early career nutrition professionals and nutrition or dietetic students who have or are working toward a qualification that is recognised by the New Zealand Nutrition Society or Dietitians New Zealand.

The inaugural PGECN Conference was hosted in 2014 in Dunedin. Following its success, three annual meetings have since followed (Wellington 2015, Christchurch 2016, and Auckland 2017), and it has now firmly established itself as a pivotal opportunity for emerging nutritional scientists to present research to peers before delivering presentations at large international conferences.  

The annual conference provides an opportunity for nutrition professionals to present research, participate in a career-orientated workshops, learn how to build a successful career as a nutritionist or dietitian and network with other nutrition professionals.
