Doctor Ridha Kechrid is specialized in cardiology and pharmacology. He became interested in the healthy management of health costs, the rational use of medication, and the prevention of chronic diseases, specifically cardiovascular problems and diabetes. He is one of the first doctors to have understood the benefits of the “Smart and Light” program, and has been a constant support to Sophie Reverdi and the program since 2005. Doctor Ridha Kechrid also suggested that Sophie find a more financially accessible means to her method, and thus played a part in the idea that was to become the Smart and Light e-Learning program.
