Worshipful Company of Cooks Lecture 2016
Fri 28 October 2016, 17:00 – 18:30 BST
CAN THE UK COOK ITS WAY TO BETTER HEALTH?
Professor Martin White, Programme Lead for food behaviours and public health interventions at the Centre for Diet and Activity Research (CEDAR), will deliver the sixth Worshipful Cooks' Company Lecture on Friday 28 October 2016.
Professor White is a clinical academic, trained in both medicine and public health, with broad experience of public health research and practice, and a national and international reputation for his research and leadership. He has an interest in developing research on the influence of the food industry, the impact of social and policy interventions on diet, and the population impact of individual level interventions.
The lecture is sponsored by the Worshipful Company of Cooks of London. The smallest of the livery companies, it traces its origins back to the 12th century founded from two guilds of cooks in medieval London - the Cooks of Eastcheap and the Cooks of Bread Street. Today the Company's present membership continues to include craft tradesmen, and it engages actively with a broad range of organisations and charities associated with cooking.
