Improving Health and Nutrition Course.( 23rd -27th OCTOBER, 2017.)

Event: Improving Health and Nutrition Course


While most of us know that good nutrition is essential in helping us feel our best and reach our optimal health; finding time to eat a balanced diet on a daily basis seems a formidable task in this fast-paced affluent society. The good news is that by taking charge of your diet, you can improve your health while reducing your risk of lifestyle diseases such as heart disease or cancer.
Good nutrition is therefore one of the keys to good health. This five day training is aimed at developing healthier communities by filling in the gaps between nutrition and health
