My name is Helena Trigueiro and I am a Portuguese trainee Dietitian, soon to be registered by the Dietitians Portuguese Council. When I was in high school my passion for food and health resulted in me falling in love with nutrition. I applied to the University of Porto where I studied Food Sciences and Nutrition, and later continued as a Masters’ student.
Her thoughts on discovering & attending Summer School 2018
The course content is extremely diverse: you can be learning about body composition in one morning, and in the next one be exploring case-studies or scientific papers. This remarkable chance to hear lecturers from all over the world is joined by their generosity in sharing information and data.
Top Tips from Helena
Another thing I would say would be to enjoy the experience outside the lectures: socialise, visit Cambridge and enrol in the evening activities NNEdPro suggests for you, it will be well worth it!
Finally, this experience is very short but very intense: be a sponge. Ask when you don’t understand something, try to acquire as much knowledge as you can… and be happy.
I am very honoured and very glad that I had this experience, I would unquestionably recommend it and it was one of the highlights of my year. Thank you NNEdPro!
