Mrs. AMNT Adikari
It gives me great pleasure to issue this message to the website of Nutrition Society of Wayamba University of Sri Lanka as a Senior Treasurer of the Nutrition Society of Wayamba University of Sri Lanka (NutSoc).
NutSoc was established in 2002 under the Department of Applied Nutrition of Wayamba University of Sri Lanka, only academic Department in Sri Lankan state university system offering an undergraduate degree programme in human nutrition. The vision of the NutSoc is to improve the nutrition and health status of the population in Sri Lanka through developing a strong relationship with the community and conducting public awareness regarding proper nutrition. To achieve the expectation of the NutSoc the website of Nutrition Society of Wayamba University of Sri Lanka was launched in 2016 when the Department of Applied Nutrition completed its 20 years of nutrition training and community services.
Nowadays people are more concern about foods that they eat and how foods relate to their health and wellbeing. Since one of the responsibilities of the NutSoc is to provide reliable nutrition information on proper nutrition for a healthy lifestyle and nutritional management of diet-related diseases this website can use as a nutrition information provider on currently important nutrition issues in simple and easy to understand way to the community. Further, it serves as a source of sharing and dissemination of novel research findings of nutrition and dietetic researches.
I hope this website is a tool to uplift the nutritional status of the community since it helps to aware the public regarding proper nutrition by providing reliable information on nutrition. I invite you to visit and update the site regularly to gain nutrition knowledge and awareness that lead to the wellbeing of you and the public.
