Upcoming webcast

Finally I'm writing about one my three November projects. This post relates to #2, the recently published diet and cancer report.

Today I received this email announcement from Dietitians of Canada (DC) that I'm posting here for DC members who may have overlooked it in their bulging email. The event sounds much too valuable to miss. Here are the details:

"This free Webcast is brought to dietitians and health educators across the country by the BC Cancer Agency, with support from the BC Cancer Foundation and in cooperation with Dietitians of Canada:

Diet and Cancer Prevention: A Global Perspective, presented by Dr. Geoffrey Cannon

TEST YOUR SYSTEM: Once you have completed registration, be sure to "Test your System". This will ensure you have all the necessary and up-to-date software. If you do not, you can link directly from your test report to websites for free software downloads.

The broadcast is a real time transmission of Dr. Cannon’s presentation before a live audience in Vancouver. If the timing of the LIVE event is not convenient, you will be able to view the archived event on the internet for 365 days afterwards."

*Thank you* BC Cancer Agency, the BC Cancer Foundation, and Dietitians of Canada for setting up this webcast, a way of using high tech to improve knowledge transfer and dietetic practice.
