Medical curriculum vitae[edit]

He studied at the Faculty of Medicine, [Technion, Haifa] from 1982 to 1989. He received degree of B.Sc. of Medical Sciences cum laude in 1986 and received degree of Doctor of Medicine cum laude in 1990.

Hi M.Sc thesis theme was Nutritional Epidemiology of Colorectal Cancer- Carotenoids and his M.D. thesis theme was Epidemiology of Myeloproliferative Disorders in North Israel.[3]

Occupation[edit]

He was Head Physician of Recruitment Center from 1990. He was Head of Medical Quality Control of Recruitment Centers at IDF from 1997. He performed nutritional epidemiology/carotenoid isomers research as part of MECC (Molecular Epidemiology of Colorectal Cancer) research, Department of Epidemiology and Public Health, Carmel Medical Center, Haifa. His research established the first carotenoid isomer database in food items [4] and was the first to examine associations between dietary carotenoids intake and colorectal cancer risk.[5] His studies demonstrated differences between the association of dietary intake of carotenoid isomers and colorectal cancer risk. The studies have shown that 9-cis beta-carotene isomer has a strong inverse(protective)association with colorectal cancer risk, while smoking attenuates the protective effects of carotenoids on colorectal cancer risk, thus smokers do not enjoy protective effects of dietary intake of carotenoid isomers, that are found mainly in fruits and vegetables.[6][7] His medical activity additional focus is on quality assurance of medical procedures, instruction of fellow physicians in providing high quality medical services, establishing and training for the technical and administrative medical personnel, screening procedures among adolescents, epidemiology of medical conditions among the young population,[8] epidemiological research of populations, and nutritional and cancer epidemiology.[9] He is currently leading a project of screening procedures among young populations aimed at identifying high risk subgroups requiring intervention by primary and secondary prevention in order to lower morbidity and mortality risk, by ensuring best quality of healthcare and collaboration between the various medical authorities.[10]
