About the event

ABOUT THE EVENT

Using the framework of the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing (2021-2030), comprising four pillars, her talk will use examples to illustrate the concepts of “Combating ageism,” “Building Age-friendly environments,” “Integrated care,” and “Ensuring access to long-term care for the needed” to promote and build an age-friendly society. She will then use her own research to illustrate how to adopt a sustainable diet to create such an environment.

MEET OUR FACILITATOR 

Dr. Zhaoli Dai-Keller

Dr. Zhaoli Dai-Keller is an emerging nutritional epidemiologist who promotes healthy aging and longevity in diverse populations through sustainable diets. Her research examines the impact of dietary patterns, food groups, and nutrients on reducing disease risk and severity to improve the quality of life in ageing. Additionally, her work addresses healthcare equity and optimal telehealth use for racial and ethnic minority groups. She is particularly interested in applying a cost-effective digital tool to implement dietary interventions to improve optimal nutrition for older adults.

Through this research, she aims to integrate effective dietary strategies into daily practice to prevent and manage age-related diseases such as cardiometabolic conditions, cognitive decline, and musculoskeletal disorders. By reducing disease burdens, she seeks to foster a healthier and happier life for older adults.

Dr. Dai-Keller has published over 50 peer-reviewed articles in top-tier journals, such as The Lancet, The BMJ, Annals of Rheumatic Diseases, and PLOS Medicine (Published name: Zhaoli Dai; Google Scholar Profile).

In addition to her research, Dr. Dai-Keller is a dedicated educator. She teaches public health program planning and evaluation, nutritional epidemiology, and the history of public health to both undergraduate and postgraduate students. Her educational efforts aim to equip future public health professionals, medical practitioners, and health science students with systems thinking and essential analytical skills, empowering them to identify public health challenges and develop evidence-based solutions.
