Event Details

Dear members,

The next  LDB evening meeting will be on Weds 5th July 2017 from 7-9.30pm at the Clubroom, Park Crescent Conference Centre, 229 Great Portland Street, London W1W 5PN.

The topic will be on 'Vitamin D deficiency in Sport'. The speaker will be Dr Paul Jenkins.

Vitamin D is a steroid hormone derived from cholesterol. The majority is obtained from ultraviolet conversion of calciferol within the skin to the active cholecalciferol. Vitamin D deficiency is very common being defined as less than 50 nmol/l and occurs in up to 70% of sports people, particularly those engaging in indoor sports. Current recommended guidelines are controversial but in general most individuals require around 2000 IU (50 mcg) a day.

After qualifying with a degree in Medical Sciences at Cambridge University, Dr Paul Jenkins undertook his clinical training at The Royal London Hospital. Shortly afterwards he joined the internationally renowned  Department of Endocrinology at St Bartholomew’s Hospital, where he remained for over 15 years. He led an active research group into the interactions between hormones and cancer and has published more than 70 scientific papers in this field as well as writing several books and text-book chapters.

 In 2002, he established a diagnostic medical imaging company, The European Scanning Centre in Harley Street. The overriding ethos is to utilise the latest imaging technology coupled with reporting by senior radiologists drawn from leading teaching hospitals. The ESC is now one of the foremost diagnostic imaging centres worldwide and is the leading UK Centre for cardiac and musculoskeletal imaging utilising a group of cutting edge CT and MRI scanners. 


There will be refreshments available and copy of presentation and attendance certificate will be sent to attendees post-meeting.

Non-SCP members welcome to attend meeting subject to £10 admission fee
