The NNEdPro Global Centre for Nutrition and Health in Cambridge is conducting the certified Summer School in Applied Human Nutrition in September 2020.
The 2020 edition of the Summer School is co-organised with the School of Advanced Studies on Food and Nutrition of the University of Parma, Italy, and will be delivered by a contingent of internationally recognised lecturers for the occasion.
In 2020, the event will be online and take place over the three first weekends of September to allow more flexible distance learning. All the live lectures will also be recorded and mentors will be available at different time zones to answer your questions. In addition, you will get free access to all relevant and recorded material as well as 1 year membership as associate member of the International Academy of Nutrition Educators (IANE), with core benefits such as 1:1 mentoring sessions, topical webinars, online journal clubs appraising current research and much more.
