NOVAsaúde Nutrition "SOCIETY, CITY AND HEALTH" conference will take place on November 12, 2019, from 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm, in the Auditorium of the Rectorate of the NOVA University.
Society determines food consumption, it is therefore important to reinforce the impact that this factor has by directly or indirectly, consciously or unconsciously in the nutritional status of a large number of individuals.There are social inequalities in access to adequate food, both in excess or food shortage. Results of the national food survey and physical activity show that groups with lower incomes and with lower level of education are the ones with the highest prevalence of food insecurity. Moreover, individuals with the lowest level of education are those with a higher prevalence of obesity and overweight.The municipality can be a strategic point in the modification of society. The strategies that are implemented can constitute a good model to be amplified in order to contribute to a good nutritional status and, in consequence, reaching a wider range of individuals.
Registration until November 11th here.
