India Network

Active since 2014, the Indian NNEdPro Network is a collaboration of dietitians, doctors, academics, medical and health educators, researchers, students, professional associations and other key stakeholders across India. NNEdPro manages its key activities in India via the Laketown Scientific Research and Clinicians Association (Remedy Clinic Study Group [RCSG]) based in Kolkata, India. The RCSG is a non-governmental organisation with independent governance and in an exclusive partnership as the principal Indian agency of the NNEdPro Global Centre headquartered in the UK. 


The Strategic Goals for the India Network are:
