The Yakult company has a strong tradition of supporting students, researchers and healthcare professionals, particularly at the start of their careers. For over ten years, a series of awards have been sponsored by us at universities, institutes and other organisations through the UK and Ireland in the fields of nutrition, dietetics, gastroenterology, nursing, medicine, microbiology, science education and sports science. 2013 saw the launch of the Gut Health Award - for healthcare professionals conducting a gut health awareness campaign for their patients.
These awards are appreciated not just for their monetary value but because they can be included on CVs to help employers spot talented individuals.
