Research Outcome Seminar on Nutrition and Healthy Living

QNRF ROS Nutrition and Healthy Living

Food is a double-edged sword; it could be a source of nourishment and health, or a cause for illness and loss of quality of life. It all depends on our choice of food and eating behavior. The question is, how can we distinguish between healthy and unhealthy food, when both taste as good! Could apple, ginger, and tea reduce the risk of diabetes and its related complications? What about lifestyle and physical activities? Aren’t they as important as a healthy diet in maintaining good health? Could maternal nutritional imbalance be the reason behind my child development problems? During this seminar, you will get the answers to all the above and more, while listening to presentations about the outcome from five scientific studies conducted at the MoPH, HMC, QU, WCMC-Q, and the University of Calgary in Qatar. As we all know, “Knowledge is power”, hence, please join us, and hear the latest in scientific research findings on food and healthy lifestyle. To register and attend the seminar, click here
