Rank Nutrition Lecture at the Diabetes UK Professional Conference
Professor Naveed Sattar presented the Rank Nutrition Lecture at the Diabetes UK Professional Conference, 14-16 March 2018 in London. His presentation on “Obesity and diabetes: understanding risks and benefits through epidemiology and trials” was well received.
The Rank Nutrition Lecture is funded by the Rank Prize Funds in memory of Professor Harry Keen, who sadly passed away in 2013. Professor Keen was a physician and epidemiologist who did much to shape the modern understanding of diabetes and its treatment. The lecture is specifically focused on nutrition and is open to those working or carrying out research in this area. The Rank Prize Funds were set up in 1972 to foster Lord Rank's interests, which included science in human and animal nutrition, and Professor Keen sat on the Committee for over 22 years.
