Established by Alex Ruani, PhDc Nutr Sci Ed, UCL Doctoral Researcher and Chief Science Educator, The Health Sciences Academy
Alex Ruani is a Doctoral Researcher in nutrition science education at University College London, and chief science educator at The Health Sciences Academy, where she leads a team of accomplished scientists and PhDs on large education and publishing projects helping 150,000+ working and aspiring nutrition professionals succeed in their careers.
Her expertise is sharing what’s new and what’s actually working in the field of nutrition, giving learners the tools they need to stay on top of evidence-based advice and get ahead of the curve – from nutrition biochemistry, appetite and eating psychology, to nutritional neuroscience, nutritional genetics and epigenetics, and gut microbiomics.
Her most recent research at UCL looks at the main sources of nutrition misinformation during the COVID-19 pandemic, their influence on eating behaviour change, and what makes us believe in harmful food and eating practices, so we can successfully debias these and mitigate the risk of health harm.
Whatever journey your health and health education may be, this day is for you!
