TAIPEI – Media OutReach – 14 December 2022 – Premier global nutrition company Herbalife Nutrition has joined with the American Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan (AmCham Taiwan) to drive nutrition education through the 2022 Citizen’s Health Forum. This is the second year Herbalife Nutrition is partnering with AmCham Taiwan to hold the health forum that aims at increasing knowledge of nutrition and health for the general public.
Featuring eminent healthcare professionals from Taiwan, Hong Kong, Canada and Japan, this year’s health forum will be held on December 18 at the NTUH International Convention Center in Taiwan, and will be virtually accessible to audience members who join online. The health forum also serves as a platform for sharing new health insights and advancing collaborative opportunities among healthcare professionals, nutritionists and food science experts.
