UOP Organizes Eighth Scientific Day of Nutrition Department

Prof. Mohammed Al-Anani, Vice President of the University of Petra (UOP), opened the Eighth Scientific Day of Nutrition Department at the UOP green square with the participation of a number of nutrition companies and centers.
The scientific day agenda included an exhibition for companies and centers working in the area of nutrition, awareness-raising lectures on nutrition, artistic activities, play and competitions with the participation of UOP students.
Prof. Anani asserted that UOP-organized scientific days aim at enriching and increasing students’ stock of knowledge and helping students to acquire and improve social communication skills.
Prof. Tawfiq Arafat, Dean of Faculty of Pharmacy & Medical Sciences (FPMS), noted that FPMS’ majors are related to individuals’ health, which increases the importance of FPMS-organized events.
"The companies’ participation working in related medical and health areas paves the way for interested students to obtain consultations, learning about best nutrition methods for healthy lifestyle and preventing use of medications or non-scientific methods that may harm the body,” Prof. Arafat added.
Dr. Refat Alkurd, Chairman of Nutrition Department, outlined that UOP enables all community members to attend and benefit from the lectures and activities of the scientific day and the Nutrition Department provides free consultations by nutrition clinic to UOP students, UOP staff and community members over the year and during the working hours.
Prof. Anani, Prof. Arafat and Prof. Alkurd distributed memorial shields to scientific day supporters and participating companies in the exhibition.
