A meeting organised by the Royal Society of Medicine Food & Health Forum and the
McCarrison Society for Nutrition and Health

Educational  aims:   Following varying nutritional needs, stage by stage through  the lifecycle: preconception to infancy, childhood and puberty, performance and adulthood into later life.

Meeting Objectives: To raise the questions: 1. How, at each  stage of life, do the prime nutrients or deficits affect,  brain, body, and childbearing? 2. Can a more  Homo-specific food-chain curtail the modern nutrition- related pandemics? 3. To what  extent are epigenetic effects transgenerational? 4. How can each  age-group learn the means of lifecycle health? 5. What environmental and ecological factors affect  physical,  mental and social health?  What global provision is needed?

Who should attend: Healthcare practitioners, consultants and scientists; stakeholders in food, agriculture  and medicines; academics and students in nutrition, health  and fertility.
