Honored to have been invited by the American Society of Nutrition to speak at the Dubai International Congress of Nutrition last week. In my two presentations, I talked about how whole grains can impact cardiometabolic health and the importance of whole-grain intake for global health. Did you know that low intake of whole grains and high intake of sodium are the two most important dietary risk factors for NCD morbidity and mortality globally?
It was great to be back in Bogotá, to visit our students from the Global Health minor at FUCS university and to present our research at Javariana University. Looking forward to hosting some of their students at Erasmus MC!
