The Dairy Council hits the road in UK

The Dairy Council has announced the launch of a month long roadshow in cities across the UK, which will showcase the latest research and insights on dairy, nutrition and health. The seminar series, ‘Dairy & Health: The Evidence Explained’, will start later this week in Glasgow and Newcastle, followed by conferences in Liverpool, Birmingham, Cardiff and London. The event is for health writers and health professionals.

The seminars will provide insights into topics including: dairy’s relationship with cardiometabolic health, obesity and healthy ageing (muscle and bone health). The Dairy Council will distribute a series of new reports and factsheets for health professionals at each event.

Dr Anne Mullen, director of nutrition at The Dairy Council, says, “The role of milk and dairy foods in leading a healthy balanced diet is all too often misunderstood – but the evidence is well-substantiated and it’s gathering strength.

“We therefore wanted to host a series of seminars to engage with health writers and health professionals across the country, and to offer a platform to translate the science and debunk the nutritional myths.

“We’ll be drawing on the very latest research being carried out in the field and will provide some insights into the role of milk and dairy and life-long health. Milk and dairy matters at all stages of life and can help in addressing a number of public health concerns. Throughout the month we will take a look at the latest evidence, address the myths head on and offer some translatable evidence-based information.”

All seminars in this series are CPD endorsed by The Association for Nutrition and have been backed by AHDB Dairy.

The events are free to attend. To register please contact [email protected].
