Medical students learn about nutrition at Loblaws



Poor diet plays a role in one in five deaths globally. That finding comes from the 2017 Global Burden of Disease Study, the largest effort ever to measure life expectancy, and causes and risk factors for death and disease.

Nutrition education is essential for solving this global health crisis.

That’s why professors and staff in the Lawson Centre are re-designing education for medical students and health practitioners, and training more researchers. And they are finding new ways to share relevant and reliable nutrition information with children and families.
