Are Dim Sum and red tea the reasons for Hong Kongers’ world leading life expectancy? How does culture influence nutrition intake habits? Whether modern technology benefits or hurts wellness of mankind? The course will address these questions by looking into the role that nutrition plays in preventing disease, maintaining physical and mental wellness, and keeping young and vibrant appearance. Ethical issues related to food safety, regulation and environment pollution will also be discussed. Students are encouraged to think outside the box by interlinking nutrition and wellness problems with their backgrounds such as social science, business, arts, law and technology. They will not only gain knowledge in healthcare regimes but also develop critical thinking capacity by completing a mini project that solves their everyday nutrition and wellness issues.
