Therefore, educating populations on the impact of lifestyle and diet on chronic disease and health has become a crucial area in addressing these public health concerns. The Mediterranean is well known for the good health of its population. This good health is in part due the embracing of traditional healthy lifestyles and a diet that provides numerous health benefits such as reducing the risk of heart disease, certain cancers, diabetes, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's diseases.

However, like many other developed regions, the Mediterranean faces the challenge of implementing new healthcare reforms within the context of increasing budgetary restrictions and the healthcare demands of a growing aging population that aims to maintain the current healthcare standards. Now, more than ever, the collaboration between healthcare professionals and global counterparts is vital to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease.
