LIDA Seminar: Series Launch and Big Data and the Obesity Epidemic

The Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA) is holding a series of seminars and data soc were delighted to be invited to the first one, a lecture by Professor Adam Drewnowski, who researches (amongst other things) spatial epidemiology in diets and health. Professor Drewnowski leads the Seattle Obesity Study, an investigation into the socioeconomic factors behind the distribution of obesity in the city, and his presentation focused on outputs primarily from this tract of research.

Professor Drewnowski’s work was very engaging, with many insights that are valuable to this all too frequent hand-wringing discussion on public health.
