“Health and Food Safety” has to provide a minimal protection from diseases and incorrect lifestyles.
Correct nutrition, deriving from the availability of food produced according to eco-sustainability and food adequately prepared and stored, is not only able to prevent the onset of pathological conditions, but also to promote a general good level of health.
The aim of the Master is to form professional figures with expertise in the fields of agriculture and biology-medicine, capable to: operate, in the Mediterranean area, in public and private Institutions, healthcare structures, agro-food sector, laboratories of analysis, farms; help Governors to modify regulations concerning: teaching and knowledge of the best practice of production, storage and utilization of agricultural and food products; relevance of pathologies related to malnutrition; analysis of feeding behaviours and food chains.
The Master is suitable for a wide range of people with different backgrounds and needs.
They are young post-graduate students with no working experience, specialists in related disciplines who wish to integrate their scientific knowledge and specialization, employees and managers from public and private healthcare structures, from Agriculture and Food Ministries, professional associations and agro-food industries.
