from 2.00pm to 5.00pm on Tuesday 24th November.

Led by Dr Alex Richardson, Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Evidence-Based Intervention, University of Oxford; and Founder Director of Food And Behaviour (FAB) Research.

Dr Alex Richardson is one of the world’s leading experts on the role of nutrition  - and especially dietary fats - on brain development and function - and its implications for mood, behaviour and learning. Her 90+ research publications including pioneering trials of omega-3 for ADHD, dyslexia, depression and schizophrenia, as well as for children’s behaviour and learning, including the Oxford-Durham study and the DHA Oxford Learning and Behaviour (DOLAB) trials. 

Alex is in great demand as a speaker for public and professional as well as academic audiences owing to her excellent communication skills and clear presentation style, and she is also a frequent contributor for the press, radio and TV both in the UK and abroad.

In this special 'Masterclass' half-day seminar, she will provide a detailed but accessible overview of the latest scientific evidence on dietary fats (especially omega-3) - and the practical implications of this.

Time will be set aside for questions and discussion

All delegates will also receive a free information pack - including a handout of the presentation slides - after the event.
