Ms Jenny Ng

Lecturer, Diploma in Health Management and Promotion

Graduated with a major in nutrition and dietetics degree, Jenny started her clinical dietetic career by setting up two dietetics and catering departments in the Community Care sector. Her stint in management roles at such early stage of her career served as a training ground and steep learning curve to progress on to other areas of dietetics.

She later moved on to community health – National Healthcare Group Polyclinic (NHGP), where she practiced prevention and management of chronic diseases in a multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurse educators and allied health. Right before joining RP as a full time staff, Jenny was helming her private practice in Novena medical suite and continuing to pursue her other passion – teaching in RP.

Course Fees: $128.95 (inclusive of 7% GST)

Prevailing course fee subsidy at 90% for Singaporeans/ PRs and 45% for foreign staff working in eligible community care organisations.
