May 6,  2017 Conference Room, Sky Mall, Haggatt Hall, 1.00-6.30pm

In countries like Barbados and the Caribbean in general where many people suffer from chronic non-communicable diseases such as obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol knowledge of food and nutrition interventions which are scientific and evidence based is critical to making an impact in each patient’s lives. Together, with multi-disciplines involved in patient care, we can make a difference. Stronger together!

Do you work in the healthcare field but are not a nutrition expert? There is so much confusion about food and nutrition in our society today.
