Event Details

The Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences is committed to working in partnership with students to offer “an outstanding broad-based international education to talented students” (Global Strategy 2020). This is exemplified by the initiative to develop a series of evening workshop masterclasses that unite UG and PG across all programmes to explore common themes.

Join us on Tuesday 14 May at 5:30 PM when we focus on the fascinating theme of Obesity and Diabetes. Experts from several schools within the University of Nottingham and a multi-disciplinary bariatrics team from the East Midlands Bariatric Metabolic Institute (EMBMI) at University Hospitals of Derby and Burton NHS Foundation Trust will present the latest research on and treatment of obesity and diabetes.
