Program Information Program Name YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT: UNDERSTANDING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN DIET AND DISEASE
Program Type Virtual Program
Program Description Obesity and iron deficiency (ID) remains the most common nutritional disorder worldwide. I am intrigued by questions: How to maintain a healthy body weight? Why have obese individuals increased the risk of micronutrient deficiencies? How does ineffective iron trafficking cause altered body composition and metabolic disorder diseases? How should we treat those patients? Can digital technology help us with better nutrition care? Professor Jung-Su Chang’s lab is currently investigating the effectiveness of digital technology (e.g. FoodApp, 3D/AR food model) on obesity-related nutrition care, and is also developing alternative nutrition therapy for patients with anemia of inflammation.
