Never has the need to consider nutrition in public health been more urgent. From the increased risk of Covid-19 faced by those with overweight and obesity to the countless children going hungry in lockdown without free school meals. The need for community education and support to access nutritious and affordable food and create healthy habits is startlingly apparent.
These informative and inspirational webcasts will examine policy and practice aiming to reduce health inequalities and improve outcomes locally through nutrition. With in-depth analysis of strategies for tackling obesity, malnutrition and the social determinants of health, these practical sessions will bring together government, industry and community organisations to examine effective whole systems approaches to local nutrition and health challenges. Don't miss your chance to join challenging panel discussions and hear from pioneering case studies of success. Learn more about the science of human behaviour and relationship towards food and translate theory into practice through powerful, evidence-based presentations.
