Back in touch again with Upate(s) - Nutrition, exercise, health education

24 November, 2022

Dear HIFA-members around the world - me getting back in touch with some updates and invitation to collaborate!

As you may remember, I am working at the interface of sports & exercise, vegetarian-vegan nutrition, and sustainable health, especially focusing on different populations from athletes to school and university populations (pupils/students, teachers/academic staff) health education and literacy based on the dual approach to sustainable and lifelong health by the permanent connection of both the pillars (1) healthy diet/nutrition and (2) regular PA, sports & exercise:

Since I joined here, we were busy within 3 main projects of these each is a follow-up of the previous one:

Now, again, we try to go for the next steps, looking for interested, reliable and robust partners to create a consortium for (a) meaningful application(s)
