About the Event
Day 1 & 2: Topic 1: Principles of nutrition, physiology, and health
Students analyse the impact of diet on health and wellbeing throughout the life cycle. They develop the skills to explore the nature of diet-related disorders while exploring links with the biochemistry of nutrients: their structure, function, and interaction. The study of the digestive system will generate discussion about the influence of the microbiome on health and malabsorption syndromes. Students analyse and evaluate data and scenarios, and provide solutions to complex problems requiring analysis.
