Dr Sarah Bath is a Lecturer in Public Health Nutrition at the University of Surrey and a registered dietitian. Dr Bath has been working on iodine since 2006, investigating iodine status and its implications in UK pregnant women and women of childbearing age. Dr Bath held a Medical Research Council Fellowship (2013-2016) which developed her work on iodine. She has published work in the Lancet (2013) that showed children born to UK women with low iodine status in early pregnancy were more likely to have low IQ and reading scores at 8-9 years. Dr Bath is the author of an iodine fact sheet, published by the British Dietetic Association, which can be used by health professionals and the public for information on iodine. Dr Bath is a member of the Scientific Advisory Board of the World Iodine Association, and is also a committee member of the UK Iodine Group.
