The world of social media provides an overwhelming amount of information on food and nutrition. Often this information can be misleading and, in some instances, harmful to people’s health. For the average person, it is difficult to know whether this information is fact or fiction.
The UCD Institute of Food and Health is an international leader in food and health research focusing on Food Safety, Food Sustainability, Primary Production Systems, Innovative Processing & Food Quality, and Nutrition & Health. Communicating sound, factual scientific-based evidence is an integral part of our work. For the past four years we have run the successful Public Lectures in Food and Health and we are delighted to be back in 2023 with a series of new topics and to revisit some previous topics updating them with the latest scientific knowledge and advances in the area. All our previous lectures can be found here.
The lectures will be streamed live via Zoom Webinar. Registration is essential and an email with a link to join the webinar will be sent in advance of each lecture.
