professionals (HCPs), researchers, and other experts to play a bigger role in
imparting credible information to the general public. The
Dialogue Series is a bridge between my fellow healthcare experts and the
consumers, to share nutrition knowledge and perspectives in an engaging way. I had the pleasure of having candid and in-depth
conversations with these experts on various topics of importance to Asia
Pacific like diabesity, heart health, healthy aging, and the importance of
collaboration to drive better public nutrition awareness and education."
The series starts with "The
collaborative road to better nutrition awareness" with Dr Jeremy Lim, CEO and co-founder
of AMiLi, Southeast Asia's first and only precision gut microbiome company. The
following dialogues will feature:

Finkelstein, professor of health services and systems research, National
University of Singapore Medical School, discussing the topic of "Tackling
diabesity in Asia Pacific"
- Prof. William Chen (director
of food science and technology, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore),
talking on "The path to healthier aging"
- Derrick Ong (principal dietitian and
founder of Eat Right Nutrition), sharing insights around "A focus on heart
Series was developed after a Herbalife Nutrition survey showed substantial nutrition knowledge gaps among consumers
in Asia Pacific. The majority of consumers in Asia Pacific saw HCPs and nutrition companies as the top
sources of trusted nutrition information. In addition, most consumers surveyed wanted
more nutrition information from HCPs but two in
three shy away from proactively asking for nutrition advice. The survey was conducted last year among 5,500
consumers and 250 HCPs in 11 countries.
