Many of us are on a health kick after the glut of the festive season, but it isn’t enough to simply turn down the offer of chocolates and cake and run around the block.
A dietician at the General Practitioners 2019 Conference, hosted by the University of Cape Town, urged doctors and their patients to know exactly what food labels are telling us, and to understand the regulations governing them.
Dietician Marieke Theron told delegates the first step is understanding exactly what each term means.
UCT staff and students were represented at the 2018 Nutrition Congress held in Johannesburg.
Staff delegates were: Mrs Najaar, Mrs Booley and Mrs Theron. Student delegates were: Dr Folasire, Mrs Drummond and Mrs Hoosen.
The nutrition congress was a huge success and everybody felt they had learned a great deal from their peers.
Dear students and colleagues
The University of Cape Town (UCT) is hosting a special memorial service to honour the memory of our fallen colleague Professor Bongani Mayosi on Thursday, 2 August 2018, from 15:30 for 16:00 in Memorial Hall.
