This year's program is titled “Vitamins in Early Development and Healthy Aging: Impact on Infectious and Chronic Disease.” More than 250 delegates from the UK, Ireland, North America, mainland Europe and across the world are expected to participate - from academia, higher education, dietetics, public health, medicine and industry. The overall aim of this international meeting is to review and discuss the existing evidence base in relation to the role of vitamins in early development and healthy aging and the impact on infectious and chronic disease risk. The conference theme will be explored across four symposia, namely, vitamins and cognitive development and performance, vitamins in muscular and skeletal function, vitamin D and immune function – from pregnancy to adolescence and vitamins, infectious and chronic disease during adulthood and aging.
