Dr. Lamees El Derbi

I completed my professional nutrition education at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Canada. I have been awarded Board Certification by the American Association of Bariatric Counselors (AABC). After completing a specialized training and education program in bariatric science I was recently credentialed as a Board Certified Bariatric Counselor (CBC). My clinical experience and recognition of the obesity pandemic and the need for specialized competency in bariatric science inspired my post-graduate training and certification with AABC.
I have more than ten year experience as a clinical dietitian at different medical centers and hospitals in Abu-Dhabi. I worked two years at Imperial College London Diabetes Center before I moved to Health Point Hospital.
I have the honor of being the UAE Country Representative to International Affiliate of The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (IAAND). In this international capacity, I have the opportunity to share best dietetic practices with a global community.
I have recently been accredited as Bariatric Care Specialist from the Surgical Review Corporation.
