Exercise Your Health
The fourth Healthy Food, Healthy Lifestyle event, entitled ‘EXERCISE YOUR HEALTH’ will be held in Aspire Dome, Doha, on Monday May 15, 2017. This highly interactive workshop on health, nutrition and sport will bring together government officials, industrial leaders, scientists and professionals to share knowledge and gain further insight in pursuit of a healthier and more active society.
Dietary and lifestyle related diseases and associated high medical bills, their negative effect on quality of life and significant economic and societal impact, is a global challenge. With stunning rates of obesity, diabetes type two and numerous cardiovascular diseases in the Gulf region, The Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands together with GMBS Business Support found the need to establish the Healthy Food, Healthy Lifestyle™ (HFHL) label. This initiative aims to contribute to Gulf country governments and industries for its citizens to increase awareness, embrace healthier habits and adopt a more nutritious and balanced diet. It does so, by organising a series of seminars and highly interactive workshops throughout the Gulf region.
Now, after organising three successful events in the GCC, the HFHL team is looking forward to host its upcoming event in the beautiful city of Doha. Besides Qatari expert speakers in the fields of health and nutrition, the workshop EXERCISE YOUR HEALTH also features Dutch speakers, such as from The Choices Program and the Netherlands Knowledge Centre for Sports. Participants will be able to share their knowledge, experience and views in multi-stakeholder group discussions to jointly tackle health related issues and present causes and possible solutions to their fellow participants Focus areas will be for example “How can the medical sector contribute to reducing medical bills by preventive health oriented campaigns?” and “How can we make the fresh produce shopping experience more fun, responsible, sustainable and health conscious?”.
Other than learning and exchanging knowledge, this workshop provides ample opportunity to its participants to nurture and expand their network; Participants are in general policy planners, decisions makers and scientists from different ministries, universities, research institutes, health care providers, retail and food industry, financial institutions, and other organisations in the fields of health, sports and education.
