Dr Asmita Patel

Research Manager and Lecturer in Research Methods
South Pacific College of Natural Medicine

Dr Asmita Patel holds a doctorate in public health from AUT.  Asmita will be presenting findings from two studies. The first study was designed to identify how and why men may make dietary changes as a result of their prostate cancer diagnosis. Prostate cancer survivors are responsive to making dietary changes for health-related reasons and can benefit from practitioner guidance regarding lifestyle changes. The second study was designed to provide a demographic profile of older adults who attend a natural medicine clinic.  An integrative approach (conventional medicine and complementary and alternative medicine modalities) can be utilised in managing some conditions that older adults may encounter.
