Dr. Anh Nguyen is a registered Nutrition Practitioner and Consultant in Genomic Medicine in the UK. He graduated from Harvard Medical School, where he underwent rigorous training as a global clinician-scientist. During his time at Harvard, Dr. Nguyen took the lead in pioneering a collaboration initiative among Harvard Asian scholars, focused on promoting lifestyle medicine for mothers from Asian countries. This ground-breaking program aimed to empower mothers with practical skills and strategies to enhance their children’s health and well-being. In close collaboration with fellow Harvard scholars, Dr. Nguyen developed a comprehensive curriculum covering essential topics such as child nutrition, mindfulness, positive parenting, child behaviours, social connection, and emotional intelligence (EQ) development in children. By incorporating evidence-based behaviour change theories, he ensures that the program provides mothers with effective tools to make informed decisions and create positive transformations in their children’s lives.
In recognition of his exceptional work in the field, he has been elected as a Fellow of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine. Dr Nguyen has been invited to speak at prestigious workshops and conferences, including the Asia Summit Global Health in Hong Kong, Excellence in Paediatrics Conference, the ESPEN Congress, and the European Lifestyle Medicine Congress in Switzerland.
