To be recognized for everything they do for the students, the School of Nutrition Sciences of the University of Ottawa and the Consortium national de formation en santé (CNFS) – Volet Université d’Ottawa organized an event in honour of the Honours Bachelor of Nutrition Sciences preceptors. With its forty participants, the Appreciation Day for the Nutrition Program Preceptors, included continuing education sessions and took place on May 31st at the University of Ottawa. The event was a real success!
The theme of the day was “The human intestinal microbiota: a microbial organ serving our health”. It was the perfect opportunity to network and to learn more about the effects of prebiotic and probiotic foods on the intestinal microbiota. Dr. Riadh Hammami and Dr. Krista Power, two professors at the School of Nutrition Sciences of the University of Ottawa, gave the education sessions on this topic. Thank you to all nutrition practicum supervisors and we look forward to see you again next year for another celebration with on-going education session!
