The Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture Food and Environment at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is pleased to announce its ELLS summer program “Mediterranean Diet – from Genes to Health” targeting 3rd year students, Master and PhD students. The language of the courses is English. Application deadline: 10 April.

For thousands of years, people living along the Mediterranean coast have been consuming a diet rich in fiber, fruits and vegetables, quality fats and proteins and an occasional glass of locally made wine to complement their meal. This so-called Mediterranean diet has long been considered to be one of the healthiest diets known to man. In addition, the Mediterranean diet is also a realistic and sustainable way to reduce disease-causing inflammation, attain optimal weight and enjoy long and healthy life. The course will introduce the students to components of the Mediterranean diet and to cutting-edge scientific evidence for its disease prevention capabilities.
