This year, Dietitian Connection announced the establishment of a new accolade, to be awarded annually. Called the Carpe Diem Award – “Seize the Day” – it was created to honour the legacy of Brisbane-based dietitian Holly Butcher.
Holly left us all way too early when she passed away in January 2018 from Ewing’s Sarcoma. Yet she also left an incredible gift behind: a candid and refreshing letter to the world. In it, she shares her insights as the end of her life approaches, reflects on the fleeting beauty of life – and, of course, reminds us to “Carpe Diem”.
