The British Dietetics Association and the Nutrition Society are both backing the Food Manufacture Group’s free one-hour obesity webinar to be broadcast at 11am GMT on Thursday July 3.

The online seminar – Obesity and health: the big fat, sugar and salt debate – staged in association with the Institute of Food Science & Technology aims to move the debate away from vested interest, special pleading to a more secure footing based on independent interpretation of sound scientific evidence.

Taking part will be speakers from the National Institute for Health Research, the Food and Drink Federation (FDF), Consensus Action on Salt & Health and Action on Sugar and Leeds University.

The National Institute for Health Research

Speakers will include:

  • Professor Alan Jackson, director National Institute for Health Research, Southampton Biomedical Research Centre
  • Barbara Gallani, director of the FDF’s Regulatory, science and health division
  • Graham MacGregor, professor of cardiovascular medicine at the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine and chairman of Consensus Action on Salt & Health and Action on Sugar
  • Dr Charlotte Evans, lecturer in nutritional epidemiology and public health nutrition at the University of Leeds

 

The roundtable debate will be hosted by Rod Addy, online editor FoodManufacture.co.uk.

Reserve your free place for the one-hour webinar here . There is no limit to the number of delegates who can attend the webinar. Once registered, you can listen at any time after the first broadcast of the webinar.

Meanwhile, there will be a live question and answer session at the end of the debate. To register your question in advance, email Michael.stones@wrbm.com .
