Masterclass at the University of Indonesia, Jakarta 2019
Masterclass at the University of Indonesia, Jakarta, August 7th-8th 2019
Healthy hydration is on the agenda of the Hydration Masterclass and Meet the Experts at the University of Indonesia, Jakarta.
The Hydration Masterclass has been held since 2012 at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Indonesia, Jakarta. This is thanks to a collaboration between the Department of Nutrition Science and the Indonesian Healthy Hydration Working group. The objective of this class is to provide nutritionists, nurses and medical doctors the basic knowledge on hydration science as well as clinical evidence relating water to health that they can use in their daily practices.
As new scientific evidence is emerging on hydration, this topic is continuously evolving! This year’s training is divided in two parts, from August 7th to August 8th.
August 7th is dedicated to the Meet the Expert session, which is a group of courses and workshops exploring the basics of hydration. The first module done by Prof. Stavros Kavouras, PhD, from the University of Arizona, USA, is focused on water for health and exercise. It will explore the physiology of hydration in the context of exercise performance. The second module called “How to choose intake assessment methods in research” will be presented by Prof. Saptawati Bardosono, MSc, from the Department of Nutrition Science at the University of Indonesia on behalf of Dr. Joan Gandy, RD, BDE, UK. It will explore how best to record fluid intake in populations and present Indonesian fluid intake patterns from the Liq.in7 database.
August 8th is focused on the Masterclass, a full conference day dedicated to Hydration Science. The first presentation done by Prof. Saptawati Bardosono, MSc, from the Department of Nutrition Science at the University of Indonesia (on behalf of Dr. Joan Gandy, RD, BDE, UK) will be about fluid intake assessment methods and the presentation of the Liq.In 7 database: a worldwide fluid intake pattern database in 15 countries. This is followed by Prof. Stavros Kavouras, PhD, from the University of Arizona, USA, who will present the metabolism of water and the hydration assessment methods. Lastly, Dr. Ivan Tack from the University of Toulouse, France, will describe kidney functions and the evidence linking hydration to renal pathophysiology. Prof. Tack, MD, will dig deeper into how hydration could prevent renal-related disease, such as urinary tract infections or kidney stones. The Masterclass will be chaired by Prof. Lukito Widjaja, PhD, SpGK(K) from the Human Nutrition Research Center at the University of Indonesia.
