With the increasing burden of diseases such as obesity, malnutrition, and lifestyle diseases, if there is one factor that can help people live a healthier life, it is nutrition.
India, with a population of over 136 Crore, requires additional nutrition leaders capable of making a positive difference in the lives of many.
INL was founded with the mission of developing 10,000 nutrition leaders in India by 2025. It is the first business school in India to offer online certification courses in Nutrition Science, Marketing, and Business Management.
The Health Sciences Academy (THSA) is the world’s largest online educational institution devoted entirely to science. They have empowered over 1.5 million students from 170 countries and have been instrumental in raising industry standards through individualised nutrition and applied science. All of THSA’s certifications are CPD (Continuous Professional Development) compliant.
On 15 August 2021, INL and THSA jointly announced their partnership, which will expand opportunities for students and professionals by arming them with world-class evidence-based knowledge.
According to Maurice Castelijn, MBA, president and CEO of The Health Sciences Academy, “Through this collaboration, Indian students and professionals now have access to advanced nutrition certifications online. With traditional education being pushed aside by the COVID, online education has the potential to expand opportunities. It is the way of the future, particularly for dental professionals seeking to expand their opportunities.”
Dr Kanagaraj, PhD, CEO of the Institute of Nutrition Leadership, added, “With this collaboration, Indian professionals can now specialise in Clinical Weight Loss, Nutritional Therapy, Advanced Fertility Nutrition, Advanced Child and Brain Development Nutrition, Nutrition for Cancer Prevention, Detox and Toxicology, Advanced Dietary Supplements, Stress and Sleep Management, and Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutrition.”
Additionally, he stated, “Dental professionals face significant challenges as a result of rising unemployment. We are announcing a programme designed specifically for dental professionals in India, offering 100 scholarships to assist them in their professional careers.”
