Webinar recorded in May 2020

The Introduction to Nutrition as a Health Science and our role as a Global Centre is a comprehensive overview webinar giving us an idea of the scope of nutrition as a cognate scientific discipline that impacts both preventative as well as interventional aspects of healthcare. This webinar also outlines the role of the NNEdPro Global Centre for Nutrition and Health on the world stage as we prepare for the second half of the United Nations Decade of Action on Nutrition.

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.
