This week I am in Bogota and in Medellin, Colombia. I was invited to give a lecture on the global burden of non-communicable diseases at the International Days of FUCS university. I also gave seminars on the importance of nutrition in health and disease at the departments of Pediatrics, Cardiology, and Surgery at FUCS university and at CES university in Medellin. Great to meet so many new people and discuss potential collaborations!
This is my fourth year of teaching in the minor Global Health already! This summer I gave several lectures on non-communicable diseases and on the role of nutrition and lifestyle in global health in this minor targeted at medical students. Always such a motivated and engaged group!
In this year’s Cardiovascular Epidemiology course of NIHES I give a lecture and practical on the role of lifestyle in primary and secondary cardiovascular disease prevention.
My first time at Erasmus University College, the new international honor’s college of Erasmus University. What a beautiful building in the city center of Rotterdam! I was invited to give lectures on nutrition and health and the strength of evidence from different types of studies, in the course on Food, Taste, and Nutrition.
