“Optimism” key at Lantern Project conference next week

Published on

The Lantern Project’s annual conference is next Friday 5 November, focused on the theme of “Optimism”.

The Project, which consults with aged care homes in NSW and Queensland on food and nutrition, will hold its conference over a full day online, with founder Dr Cherie Hugo and the team promising a line-up of knowledgeable and passionate speakers.

“We promise it is going to be an action-packed day wrapped with so much positivity and optimism by showing and sharing leading research, practical strategies, and insights across the sector in how together we are and can give older Australians quality of life through connection, good food, nutrition and dining experiences, whatever their need,” they said.

The 4pm panel at the conference will be moderated by DCM Editor Lauren Broomham, who says it will be a good opportunity to discuss nutrition with experts.

“After our recent SATURDAY issue on food and nutrition, it is clear that this is an area where all operators – residential care and retirement living – should be focusing their attention.

“I am looking forward to exploring these issues with the panelists,” she said.

Conference tickets are available online.
