10 March 2014

Obese London

Venue: Edmond J. Safra Lecture Theatre, Strand Campus

Date and time: Monday 10 March 2014, 18.30-20.00

Speaker: Dr Louise Goff

Government statistics show the percentage of people who are overweight and obese in the UK has hit 64%, a problem associated with serious health implications. 

In London, the total number of people who are overweight is less than in other parts of the country; however, it is known to be a bigger problem in communities of diverse social, economic and ethnic backgrounds. The underlying causes of this epidemic are many and complex, but the food we choose to eat plays an important role. 

This talk will explore the factors contributing to the development of obesity, its effect on the health of Londoners and will discuss what can be done to reduce this burden, with a focus on the shifting pattern of food habits.
