Nutrition and Health – UCD Institute of Food and Health hosts a public lecture series to share its knowledge on the role of nutrition and health.

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, with a major focus on nutrition and expertise in the role of nutrition on heart health, diabetes, cancer, obesity, ageing, pregnancy, childhood and other critical stages of life. Communicating sound, factual nutrition evidence is an integral part of its work and it is pleased to announce the launch of its Public Lecture Series for 2019.

Running throughout the year, the series will include a wide range of topical areas in nutrition and health. Our next talk will be on Wednesday 20th November when Dr Aifric O'Sullivan will present on the "Role of Nutrition in Early Childhood Health".  All lectures take place in the Lynch Lecture Theatre, UCD O’Brien Centre for Science from 7:00 to 8:00pm. 

This is a free event and there is no need to book. For more information, contact the UCD Institute of Food and Health at or 01 7162808.

The slides and audio files from our previous lectures are now available in our archive, which can be accessed here
