Diet Quality and Health – 11th to 13th April 2016
Understand the role of diet in tackling key public health issues in the UK
The Food ATP’s Diet Quality & Health module, delivered by the University of Reading and leading health awareness organisations including the National Obesity Forum and Consensus Action on Salt & Health (CASH), focuses on scientific evidence for the role of diet in chronic disease and how this evidence forms the basis for current dietary guidelines and healthy eating recommendations.
The training is delivered initially by online distance learning commencing in March 2016 followed by 3 days of workshops at the University of Reading’s award winning Whiteknights campus from 11th to 13th April 2016.
During the workshops you will:
- Meet policy makers and drivers of diet and healthcare change including Professor David Haslam, Chair of both the National Obesity Forum and NICE.
- Engage in facilitated discussions with Jacqui Thornton looking at the media challenge of de-marketing obesity and communicating science and health messages,
- Review dietry intakes and guidelines in the UK with the British Nutrition Foundation,
In addition there will be a number of key note talks, case studies and lectures from leading academics in the area of Food & Nutrition and a practical session looking into reducing Hypertension at the Hugh Sinclair Nutrition Unit.
The Diet Quality & Health module is academically assessed by the University of Reading, successful completion of a final assignment after the campus workshops is awarded with 10 credits which may be used at a later date towards the taught element of any of the Food ATP’s post graduate qualifications.
Participants may also opt to register for the module as an IFST accredited training course for CPD purposes by undertaking the dual component of distance learning & campus workshops only.
