Public meetings in summer 2016
We would like to invite you to join us for three evening Fenland Study public meetings that we are holding this summer, in Cambridge, Ely and Wisbech.
This will be your chance to hear about the progress with the study including key scientific findings and our plans for future research. This will also be an opportunity for you to meet the study staff and ask questions.

The Fenland Study investigates the interaction between environmental and genetic factors in determining obesity, type 2 diabetes, and related metabolic disorders. These conditions are a considerable public health concern, but their causes and factors that predict who will be affected by them are not completely understood.
What makes the Fenland Study unique is the level of detail it collects about the health and lifestyle of participants, and the objective measurement techniques used in the screening.
The first phase of the Fenland study is now complete, and we are now inviting participants who attended an initial Fenland Study visit between 2005 and 2015 to return for a 2nd visit in Phase 2.
