Cardiovascular Disease Prevention – an appraisal of what the nutrition science tells us and implications for practice

Webinar recorded in June 2020

Cardiovascular disease, along with type 2 diabetes constitutes the largest global killer and both diet as well as nutritional status are key determinants of cardiovascular risk. This webinar looks at what the latest evidence tells us about cardiovascular prevention and where the gaps are in the evidence as well as the opportunities for preventative practice.

Each webinar is followed by a dedicated Journal Club where selected papers from associated wider literature are presented and discussed in more detail.

The webinars and journal clubs are held in partnership with the International Academy of Nutrition Educators as well as the BMJ Nutrition Prevention and Health.
