DFN wins Change Maker of the Year Award!

Doctors For Nutrition are honoured to have won Change Maker of the year in the inaugural Nourish Vegan Awards, which celebrate the best in plant-based living, as voted by readers of Nourish Magazine.


Back in May we were excited to learn that Doctors For Nutrition had been nominated for the 2020 Change Maker Award. We are now delighted to announce that we have won!


Nourish is Australia’s leading plant-based magazine, and the awards are the first of their kind in Australia. Nominees across a range of categories were shortlisted by experts from the Nourish team, followed by voting by more than 17,000 members of the Nourish community.


Speaking about the win, Doctors For Nutrition's director and co-founder Dr Heleen Roex-Haitjema said:


"It is a thrill for Doctors For Nutrition to have won this award. The articles we contribute to each issue are a fantastic opportunity for our medical and nutrition experts to share actionable evidence-based information on how to thrive on a plant-based diet.


"We are humbled to have received the most votes in the Change Maker category, and thank everyone who voted for us. It is a heartening testament to the growing interest in whole food plant-based nutrition within the community.


"We take our hats off to the other nominees and finalists in our category, all of whom do inspiring work that helps show people both why and how to embrace plant-based living."


Doctors For Nutrition experts have contributed to every issue of Nourish Magazine since December 2018, reaching a wide audience throughout Australia, New Zealand and internationally.

The Nourish Awards special edition is on sale from 1 November 2020 – 7 January 2021 in magazine retailers across Australia and online.
