My name is Claudio Frasson I have been a doctor for over 20 years, I deal with nutrition since 9. I was a general surgeon in Italy and the USA, I have often been in the United States to deepen my skills. In 2010 I graduated from Master's Degree in Population Nutrition and Food Safety and became a nutritionist. During the master I have mainly studied the skills on human micronutrition; subsequently I was a speaker several times at the international NUTRIMI congress, I wrote in Italian magazines for national dissemination, but above all I forged myself with the title of contract professor from 2013 at the Master 2 level in Food quality and safety University of Padua. I am co-supervisor of numerous Master's theses. In 2013 I was invited to report on micronutrition at the Miller school of Miami Diabetes Institute.
