Call to adopt nutritious diet
Riyadh, August 1, 2010
A call to adopt healthy nutrition practices was made by health and medical practitioners attending a major conference in Riyadh.
The 1st GCC Symposium on Clinical Nutrition was held recently at the Arrayan Hospital in Riyadh.
The event, which was aimed at increasing awareness on the importance of following a healthy lifestyle and practicing proper nutritional habits, was organised by the Dr Sulaiman Al Habib Medical Group and sponsored by Al Rabie Saudi Foods Co Ltd.
Attending the symposium were clinical dieticians, health educators, pharmacists and nurses from different health and medical institutions in Riyadh and the rest of Saudi Arabia.
The event is the first in a series of scientific conferences and meetings organised by the Dr Sulaiman Al Habib Medical Group that aims to open better communication ties between health specialists and practitioners in the country and to pave the way for more activities that are focused on discussing important health issues.
Monther Bin Trad Al Harthi, CEO, Al Rabie, said: “This symposium marks a big leap in the continuing efforts to make people more aware of the need to live a healthy lifestyle and maintain properly balanced diets. Proper nutrition is the first line of defense against common diseases and can also help people suffering from heart disease, kidney disorders and diabetes regain the strength their bodies need.”-TradeArabia News Service
