The Nutrition Society's Winter Conference Live 2020

The Nutrition Society is holding its Winter Conference Live 2020 on 8 and 9 December as an online event, with a theme of micronutrient malnutrition.

This conference will highlight recent scientific developments, current understanding and debate surrounding micronutrient deficiency and requirements across the life-course.

The four symposia of the conference will cover the topics of the importance and impacts of vitamin and mineral deficiencies in aging and disease; sarcopenia, frailty, osteosarcopenic obesity and bariatric surgery.

The symposia also cover the emerging issue of the ‘double burden of disease’ in low and middle income countries as well as the importance of micronutrients during pregnancy, and neural development in childhood. Finally, speakers in symposium four will focus on how issues of micronutrient malnutrition can be addressed, differences in micronutrient requirements across the lifecourse and the development of dietary recommendations.
