  • ‘It’s an incredibly important event, it’s not just for the UK but it really has been extremely successful in reaching out to many other countries… It’s also the mingling of the different cultures and learning from one another. It’s really time for a cutting edge conference that does brings in the rest of the world because we can all learn from each other.”
    Dr Judith Landau
    President and CEO at ARISE Network
  • ‘I think it’s vital to have the face to face contact that iCAAD allows’
    Dr Fiona Mckinney
    Chartered Psychologist
  • ‘Being from the United States, it’s so incredible to see all of the different perspectives, oftentimes, we’ll see the same people in the same room over and over again. I think there’s something important about that community, but for us it’s been such a unique experience to be able to connect with others.’ 'It’s also beautiful to see the shared similarities actually that we have, differences in how we treat these problems, but there’s so much we have in common and so much care that we have. So it’s really great to connect with other people, who are in the trenches fighting the same battles that we’re fighting all over the world.’
    Janelle Smith and Mia Raymond
    Dietary Consultant and Clinical Director at La Ventana
  • ‘I think this is a fantastic platform to share technology and ideas, I had to travel 13 hours to come here and I think it was definitely worth the flight. I’m looking forward to going back because I’ve learnt a lot myself, people are open to sharing which is very important, and I’m going to take back a lot of information back home and share it with others. I’m glad that iCAAD has provided this platform, the past three days has been a fantastic academic experience, and it’s also been useful to network. We’ve met some good friends from the past, we’ve met new friends, new opportunities, so I’m looking forward to the next iCAAD actually.’
