For the past few years, Nadera’s focus has been in the field of “Clinical Nutrition”. She worked at Clemenceau Medical Center in Beirut, affiliated with Johns’ Hopkins International, assisting in well-rounded care of many patients across the years. Her work comprised of educating hospitalized patients on specific diets to follow upon discharge according to their initial screening and nutritional assessment (medical nutritional therapy covered oncology, renal disease, diabetes, GI and liver disease, pediatrics/inborn errors of metabolism, neurological diseases); direct involvement in patients’ nutritional care in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Coronary Care Unit (CCU) and Medical/Surgical wards, which also included management of enteral and parenteral nutrition. She was also actively involved in weight counseling for a variety of patients in her clinic, assessing and instructing out-patients (both pediatrics and adults) while maintaining regular follow-ups to ensure patients achieve their goals.
Nadera has been featured on multiple media outlets including Future TV and Annahar Live, discussing issues such as obesity, diabetes, sugar consumption and food safety at home. She has also participated in educational activities and several awareness campaigns, one of which was Nestle’s Healthy Kids Global Project in 2010, which helped educate 4th and 5th elementary students (in public schools all over Beirut district) and their families about the importance of healthy eating and physical activity.
Nadera also worked in research at The American University of Beirut, and as a food safety inspector and trainer.
