The leadership of the Caribbean Association of Nutritionists and Dietitians (CANDi) remains cognizant of the impact that the COVID-19 outbreak has on the quality of life, ecosystems and absolute human existence and survival. As a result of the pandemic, thousands have experienced pain, suffering, and loss of lives. Due to social distancing protocol, many have died alone without loved ones at their side.  


The team at the Caribbean Association of Nutritionists and Dietitians are committed to encourage and support dietitians and nutritionists in the Region and across the globe. Our support extends toward to dietitian-nutritionists on the frontline or remotely helping patients, as public health officials work collectively to reduce the negative impact in the fight against this unprecedented outbreak. Thank you and remain safe.
