It is known that a correct diet is a fundamental element in the prevention of numerous pathologies. But knowing how to transmit and disseminate correct and scientifically based information on nutrition is also an important activity in a society invaded by fake news on this topic. For this reason, the University of Parma presents the third edition of the Master in Scientific Communication-CoSe, which this year dedicates a part of the educational program to the communication of nutrition.
In fact, part of the educational program of the I level Master's Degree in Scientific Communication of the University of Parma will be dedicated to the theme of the communicative effectiveness of food and nutrition, an annual course of study carried out entirely in e-learning mode, now this year in its third edition.
