How to Implement Nutrition in Health Care and Why

A PAN online series. More information on the entire series at bottom of page.

Event #8: “Nutrition in health care systems and health policy”
Speakers: Dr. Renu Singh & Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian

Dr. Renu Singh is a Postdoctoral Fellow at the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown Law and a 2017-18 Fulbright scholar at the Hertie School of Governance in Berlin. Starting in January 2021, she will be a Research Assistant Professor at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST). Her research interests include the relationship between political institutions, public opinion, and policy change in the context of public health and health policy.

Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian is Dean, and Jean Mayer Professor at the Tufts Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, and Professor of Medicine at Tufts Medical School.  His research fields include dietary priorities for obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases, and evidence-based policy approaches and innovations to reduce these burdens in the US and globally.  He has served in numerous advisory roles including for the US and Canadian governments, American Heart Association, World Health Organization, and United Nations.


Health is not only a question of individual decisions but much more a matter of political measures creating the optimal nutrition environment.  These measures on the population level are subject to the field of Public Health Nutrition (PHN). This webinar introduces the audience to PHN, discusses the effectiveness and evidence as well as barriers that potentially hinder the success of such activities. Finally, this webinar will show possibilities for health professionals to engage with PHN aims.

The series:

In the PAN online event series “Nutrition > Medicine“, we will cover the links between food and our most pressing global health threats, as well as the opportunities to make nutrition a central part of health care.

In the first events, we will discuss the impact of nutrition on various chronic diseases, on antimicrobial resistances, on pandemics, and on climate change with some of the leading international researchers in the field. Having established this foundation, we will then proceed with a series of panel discussions with experts in the various fields around the implementation of nutrition on the different levels of health care, to explore the practical solutions we need.

This series will provide current and future health professionals with the knowledge, the motivation, the network, and the tools to implement optimal nutrition in clinical practice and health care systems.
