Let food be thy medicine – Talk by Professor Nita Forouhi
March 9, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Type 2 diabetes is one of the biggest global public health challenges, also placing a massive burden in the U.K. on people with diabetes, their families and the wider society. Urgent solutions are needed to help individuals with this condition as well as to prevent those at risk from developing it in the future. Dietary factors can play a pivotal role in the prevention, management and even the possible reversal of type 2 diabetes, but there is also a lot of confusion and noise out there, with conflicting dietary advice.
In this Cambridge Society for the Application of Research (CSAR) lecture Professor Nita Forouhi, Programme Leader for Nutritional Epidemiology programme at the MRC Epidemiology Unit, aims to cut through this confusion to provide clarity.
CSAR lectures are open to members only, but CSAR welcome new members and would encourage you join CSAR online in advance of the event you wish to attend.
