Samuel Akinola (Nigeria, Faculty of Health Sciences)

Obese people have to fight several diseases that are in connection with their weight (cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, cancer). If you have the drive to help them, dietetics will provide you the required knowledge. Healthy eating – and thus the knowledge of a dietetian – is essential to prevent and successfully treat several diseases, as medications or a surgery rarely provide complete solution. Patients are often forced to stop eating their favourite treats, and a dietetian may largely contribute to the patients’ treatment, balance and well-being by offering enjoyable but healthy dietary options.
