Dietetic education: Our department has a substantial commitment to educating its staff by organizing weekly roundtable discussions and journal clubs in addition to its commitment towards other health professionals by participating in multidisciplinary educational sessions and congresses.

Community awareness: Our dietitians and dietetic interns participate in the health fairs and other community activities organized by the hospital by designing diverse nutrition-related campaigns.  

COMMUNITY HEALTH CLINIC

 

The health sector in Lebanon is in deep crisis. Medical coverage has become a commodity that only a small privileged percentage of the Lebanese society can attain; a luxury at times where health should be a basic right.

Saint George Hospital established a Community Health Clinic aimed at providing qualified care to the underprivileged. Its outreach goes beyond the walls of the hospital to encompass education, health awareness and public screening.
