Columbia University - China Circle Meeting (Shanghai)

Clinical Nutrition in Shanghai: Novel Approaches for the Next Decades

Clinical Nutrition in China: Novel Approaches for the Next Decades

On May 22, Columbia University and the China Nutrition and Health Food Association will hold a symposium on nutrition research in Shanghai. This meeting invites authoritative scholars and researchers from Columbia University, and experts, representatives, and government officials from China's food and nutrition industry to discuss the impact of westernized Chinese food on obesity, cardiovascular system, nervous system diseases and aging, and to assess China's major nutritional problems that will influence the future of China's health condition and economics. 

The meeting will focus on exploring the molecular mechanisms in adverse condition and on how to ensure a "healthier" China in the 21st century. Topics include the impact of nutrition on health and economics, Chinese cardiovascular risk factors, lipoprotein metabolism and fatty acid study, nutrition in aging, westernized nutrition, and Chinese clinical nutrition.

The symposium is supported by Columbia Global Centers | Beijing.
