Professor Kevin Whelan has been awarded a Fellowship of the British Dietetic Association
Faculty of Life Sciences & Medicine Professor of Dietetics, Kevin Whelan, has been awarded a Fellowship of the British Dietetic Association. As one of the few dietetic professors Kevin takes his role as an advocate of dietetic research, evidence based practice and robust clinical work very seriously, and actively promotes the profession on Twitter where he challenges non-science in food and nutrition and champions high quality research, and advocates for men in dietetics.
Fellowship of the Association was first awarded in 1979 and to date 93 Fellowships have been awarded. Fellowship is our highest honour which the Association can bestow upon a member in recognition of their achievements.
With research interests in gastrointestinal microbiome, fermentation, prebiotics and probiotics in health and disease, he has published 98 peer-reviewed papers across a variety of topics since 2001.
An inspirational speaker, his expertise is recognised not only by dietitians in the UK and further afield but by other professions too.
