Ms. Cynthia Bou Khalil is a Dietitian in the Department of Diet & Nutrition at the Medcare Dr Saeed Al Shaikh Gastro & Obesity Centre. She completed her BSc in Dietetics and Nutrition from Saint Joseph University (USJ) in Lebanon and her MSc in Human Nutrition from McGill University in Canada. She’s a member of the Lebanese Dietetic Association and the American Association of Bariatric Counselors (AABC).

She spent many years as a Consultant at a clinic in Lebanon, that she founded. Later, she worked as a Clinical Dietitian with Omnicare Medical and Aesthetic Centre in Dubai, followed by a long stint with the Saleh Clinic and Wellness By Design Clinic as a Bariatric Dietitian in Dubai. With such rich experience and a wealth of knowledge, Ms. Bou Khalil was a Dietetic Coordinator and Instructor at the University of Sharjah in the UAE. She is passionate about sharing her learnings to better people’s lifestyles and so taught at many universities in Lebanon and the UAE including the Lebanese University, NDU (Notre Dame University), USEK (Université Saint-Esprit Kaslik) and Sharjah University. 

Before joining Medcare, Ms. Bou Khalil was the Nutritional Consultant and Clinical Manager Excellence, at Elipse by Allurion Technologies in Dubai. Here, she provided nutritional support, content creation, and training and looked after Public Relations (PR).

Ms. Bou Khalil has been an expert dietitian with rich experience in the field of nutrition and recommends surgical and non-surgical procedures for weight loss and bariatric surgeries. She has treated patients for obesity and weight loss, Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GRD), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Celiac disease, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and fatty liver.  She is a popular host on a radio show that discusses health, a topic that is close to her heart and she likes sharing and educating others on it.

During her leisure hours, Ms. Bou Khalil likes to keep fit through exercise and unwinds by playing the piano.  She is also fond of travelling and speaks Arabic, English and French.
