2019 Today's Dietitian Spring Symposium | Don't Miss Out!
We can't wait to see you in Scottsdale!
Dear Spring Symposium Attendee:
The 2019 Today's Dietitian Spring Symposium team is eagerly anticipating your arrival at the Talking Stick Resort! To make sure everyone's experience gets started on the right track, we've included some important information below to help you prepare for arrival.
A key point of information for those heading into the Scottsdale/Phoenix area:

The location of our event is Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale. There is also a facility called Talking Stick Resort Arena, which is in downtown Phoenix ... over 20 miles away from our location!

So we urge you to be extra careful about the destination address you're using when arranging ground transportation, typing into your Uber or Lyft apps, etc. We're at the Resort/Casino, NOT the Arena!

Thanks to our friend and local RD Barb Ruhs for the inside info.
