As a former college professor, I always enjoyed having international students in my courses. It is a pleasure to work with CATALYST Training Labs and provide educational programs for dietitians working in the Middle East. The audiences are highly engaged learners, eager to explore new concepts and incorporate fresh ideas into their clinical practice. Working in the Middle East has given me a unique opportunity to visit these countries and to learn about the cultural food habits and the national healthcare systems. Dr. El Haddad and his team are detail-oriented and each program is professionally planned and executed.
