The Institute for Global Food Security, in partnership with the Oxford Farming Conference, invite you to attend the inaugural Grand Challenge Debate. This lecture is being organised in advance of the 2020 Oxford Farming Conference (7-9 January) which has selected “Growing a Healthy Society” as its key theme.

This joint event will focus on “Food, diet and health”, seeking to highlight the impact of a sub-optimal diet on non-communicable disease mortality and morbidity and opportunity to connect agriculture, food, diet to improve health outcomes.

The keynote lecture will be delivered by Professor Nita Gandhi Forouhi, a physician and academic, specialising in nutrition and epidemiology. She is Professor of Population Health and Nutrition at the University of Cambridge, the programme leader of the nutritional epidemiology programme of its MRC Epidemiology Unit, and an honorary consultant public health physician with Public Health England.
