Event description
Queens University Belfast and Oxford Farming Conference are co-hosting a discourse on food, nutrition and impact on human health.

About this Event

The Institute for Global Food Security, in partnership with the Oxford Farming Conference, invite you to attend the inaugural Grand Challenge Lecture. This public discourse is being organised in advance of the 2020 Oxford Farming Conference (7-9 January) which has selected “Growing a Healthy Society” as it’s key theme. The 2020 theme is all about strengthening the relationship between the population, the land and the people who produce the nation’s food. OFC 2020 will challenge delegates to look not just at how they can strengthen the health of their businesses and their soil but also how they can develop their own physical, mental and professional resilience.

This joint event will focus on “Food, diet and health”, seeking to highlight the impact of a sub-optimal diet on non-communicable disease mortality and morbidity and opportunity to connect agriculture, food, diet to improve health outcomes.

The keynote lecture will be delivered by Professor Nita Gandhi Forouhi, a physician and academic, specialising in nutrition and epidemiology. She is Professor of Population Health and Nutrition at the University of Cambridge, the programme leader of the nutritional epidemiology programme of its MRC Epidemiology Unit, and an honorary consultant public health physician with Public Health England.

The event will commence at 17:00 with a welcome reception. The event will be hosted at Queen's University Belfast in the magnificent Great Hall.

Interest is expected to be high so early registration is recommended.
