My name is Hiba Jameel and I am currently finishing my master’s degree in Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy. I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry and Cell Biology from the University of California, San Diego.
I love the evidence-based approach to nutrition and love holistic nutrition as I see both worlds working together in harmony towards great health. I am a health influencer and a healthy lifestyle advocate. I do not believe that there is a single ingredient that can cure all; rather, leading a healthy lifestyle is the key to enjoying a long, healthy lifespan. My thesis proposal was about the possible prevention of chronic illnesses after studying the lifestyle enjoyed by centenarians in blue zones, specifically the Mediterranean regions. I aspire to be a part of a big chronic illnesses prevention movement that can help people enjoy a fruitful life. When I am not studying, spending time with family or conducting research, I enjoy working out, painting, drawing, and landscape photography.
