The Choices African Nutrition Community (CANC) has been working on expanding its frontiers by fostering collaboration for more impacts and reach. The community will be collaborating with Eat Well Connect (EWC), a subset of Eat Well Global.
EWC is a global network with an overarching mission to empower global change agents in food and nutrition. This is by providing its global membership with professional development materials and resources to enhance communication and entrepreneurial skills, networking engagements and potential partnership opportunities. Membership includes Nutritionists, Dietitian, Food experts and other allying health professionals.
Since the inception of EWC in June 2020, there has been a bimonthly publication of the newsletter covering various themes, and a podcast-style series labelled as fireside chats in which EWC interviews outstanding members. EWC is led by four members of the Eat Well Global team including Account Managers Georgia Rounder, RDN and Tina Carlucci, RDN; Account Coordinator Bianca Mercouffer, ANutr; and Consultant Ahmad Hegazi, MD, MPH.
CANC and EWC are looking forward to an exciting collaboration in 2021 and beyond. The collaboration will go a long way in facilitating dialogues and discussion on emerging nutrition topics and events and offer mentorship opportunities as well as scholarship opportunities for rising students and professionals in food, nutrition and sustainability.
