Our next chat, Tuesday 15th October, 8-9pm GMT, is focusing on nutrition policy. We will focus on how evidence based policy can have positive outcomes for public health and how we, as nutritionists, can get involved in the policy process.
Evidence based nutrition policy, whether at a national, international, industry level or within a business, school, non-governmental organisation or charity can have powerful and very positive benefits on the lives of the people that policy targets.
Below are the questions for our next chat. Remember to use #NutrPolicy for all your answers and to label your answers A1/A2 etc.
