Berta (University of Worcester), our new student college rep
Berta previously studied Pharmacy at the University of Barcelona along with a degree in Human Nutrition and Dietetics. She is currently studying for an MSc in Nutritional Therapy at the University of Worcester and is due to graduate in June 2018. She is particularly interested in the gut-brain axis, but finds every aspect of nutrition fascinating!
“I am a pharmacist that has always been very interested in the world of nutrition and how nutrients and other food components influence the function of the body, protect against disease and restore health. This interest in nutrition also helped me to realize during my internship in a hospital pharmacy how much, from my point of view, should to be done in terms of patient’s diets. It was not the first time that I was surprised about the food that was given to patients since diet can be a serious risk factor for a number of diseases. I believe that studying Nutritional Therapy is going to give me the knowledge on how to help those around me.
I am very excited about becoming a part of the BANT Student Network Team and I look forward to talk and share ideas between Nutritional Therapy students from all institutions.”
