The Nutrition Society is excited to be bringing its annual Summer Conference to the city of Liverpool in 2023 with the theme being ‘nutrition at the key stages of the lifecycle’.
Following a successful joint bid, the conference was awarded to Edge Hill University, Liverpool John Moores University and Liverpool Hope University, and is another success for the city’s Club Liverpool Ambassador Programme. The main event will take place over four days at The Hilton Liverpool and will provide huge value to nutritional professionals from academia, industry and health-care, to food technologists, sports nutritionists, dieticians and physicians.
Good nutrition is critical at all stages of life to ensure adequate intakes of the essential amino acids, carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, vitamins and minerals that are needed to sustain life. As human bodies change significantly over time, and food is the fuel for those changes, the amounts of nutrients needed at varying life stages can differ significantly. The conference will give delegates a chance to explore the nutritional requirements across all stages of life as experts come together to discuss topics ranging from early nutrition during pregnancy, to the challenges faced for nutritionally vulnerable, elderly populations. Speakers will also discuss some of the dietary modifications used for primary and secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease as well as the potential health impacts of food fortification and reformulation strategies.
Delegates will have the opportunity to network and collaborate over evening receptions and dinners at the Maritime Museum and The Venue at Royal Liver Building.
Dr. Julie Abayomi from Edge Hill University, Chair of the Local Organising Committee, said:
“The Nutrition Society conference is one of the most important events in the calendar, so it’s brilliant to be bringing it to Liverpool after a collaborative bid between the three universities. We have such strong expertise locally, and a wonderful cultural programme on offer, so I’m sure the delegates will leave Liverpool feeling very impressed.”
