Did you miss Susan's talk for the IF Festival on 5th October? Good news! The session was recorded and you can view it here!

Here's the original blurb accompanying the talk:

Two-thirds of adults in England are overweight. Being overweight is linked to a wide range of diseases, including diabetes and some cancers. Now it’s clear that being overweight can also increase the risk of serious COVID-19 complications.

Professor Susan Jebb examines evidence for the health benefits of losing weight, why even short-term, supported weight loss programmes may be good in the long-term for people who are overweight and how, by losing just a small amount, together we can make a big difference to the nation’s health. This event is part of the art of the Health research and You series of talks from the National Institute for Health Research.

Susan Jebb is Professor of Diet and Population Health at the University of Oxford’s Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences. Her research team develop and test how to support people to eat more healthily, lose weight and improve their health. She works with government to encourage effective policy and new ways of working in the NHS.
