Winter Conference 2021:Obesity and the brain
Winter Conference 2021 registration is closed.
A Happy New Year to all.
The Trustees met yesterday (28 January) for their first meeting of 2021. We felt it would be appropriate to update members on the early plans we have for the year ahead, which initially will see a continuation of the need for a flexible approach to planning our scientific meetings, whilst remaining as proactive as is feasibly possible.
A report published by the Scientific Advisory Committee on Nutrition (SACN) on the role of saturated fats in health concluded there's no need to change current advice; we should be following dietary patterns that are lower in saturated fats, and opting for foods that have a higher proportion of unsaturated fats.
Food manufacturers, suppliers and caterers have a particular responsibility in helping people to do this, but how can they lower saturated fats within the food chain, and what implications may this have for health?
We are pleased to announce that the winning paper for the British Journal of Nutrition Paper of the Year Award 2021 is:
'The association between restricted intrauterine growth and inadequate postnatal nutrition in very-low-birth-weight infants and their neurodevelopmental outcomes: a 50-month follow-up study'
As part of the recent Theme Lead Restructure, the Society is delighted to announce the introduction of Special Interest Groups (SIGs). The aim of the SIGs is to recognise and support members with specific areas of interest. This new initiative has been introduced to ensure that the needs of our growing membership and its varied research areas, are fully supported.
Deadline to register is 5 July 2022.
The Nutrition Society Summer Conference 2022 is hosted in collaboration between Sheffield Hallam University, University of Sheffield and Sheffield City Council. It will be the first in-person Summer Conference since the pandemic, held at the Sheffield Hallam University city centre campus.
Modern nutrition science is young: It is less than one century since the first vitamin was isolated in 1926. Nutrition science stands upon research conducted by academia, the private sector, and nongovernmental organisations, often in collaboration across these sectors. Its evidence base is of fundamental importance to the solving of current challenges and complexities, optimising outcomes, and the prevention of harm.
