Scope of the workshop: During the workshop we will both look into the impact of the radical changes of the way we live our live due to COVID-19 measures on dietary behaviour and physical activity as well as on the clinical aspects where there is a clear and concerning link between obesity (and dietary related disease) and the disease course of the COVID-19 infection. From this angle we would both like to underline the importance of already set research topics of JPI HDHL as well as explore new research question/ knowledge gaps. This should both support policy makers, public and private funders and partnerships on future research investments.
Speakers: the workshop will be facilitated by the SAB chair prof. dr. Edith Feskens. SAB member prof. dr. Christophe Matthys will provide a plenary as well as prof dr. Emely de Vet. The panel following the plenary will be a combination of SAB members, SHAB members and relevant JPI HDHL funded projects.
