- Date and time Tue 4 Dec 2018 from 8:45am to 4:30pm
- Location Royal Society of Medicine
- Organised by RSM Professionals, The Nutrition Society
Explore how nutrition and lifestyle factors contribute to the development of Cardio-Metabolic Risk (CMR), and how modification of these factors can be used in practice as strategies to manage CMR, and reduce Cardio-Vascular Disease (CVD) risk.
On day one of the conference you will learn about the relevance of CMR to clinical practice and public health, the role of the amount and quality of dietary fats on CMR, and the impact of dietary fats on key metabolic tissues, including the liver, adipose tissue and skeletal muscle.
The second day of the conference will turn attention to the role of dietary carbohydrates; free sugars, resistant starches and fibre, and then broaden its remit to address the influence of whole dietary patterns, meal timing and drug therapy on CMR.
You will also have the chance to learn about new and innovative research in nutritional science from the UK and around the world.
- Metabolic bases of CMR and how diet and lifestyle contribute to its development.
- The impact of dietary fats and carbohydrates on CMR and key metabolic tissues
- The impact of other lifestyle factors e.g. dietary patterns and meal timing on CMR.
- How evidence-based nutritional science relating to CMR supports and translates into the development of practical and effective diet and lifestyle strategies for managing CMR and reducing CVD risk.
