Newcastle Discover Series

Our Newcastle Discover Series launches with an event focusing on the Centre for Healthier Lives and specifically their research surrounding Obesity.

In this inaugural episode of the series, we will discover the incredible work Newcastle University academics have completed on the topic and uncover the reasons behind the global issue and where the responsibility of solving the problem lies. Professor Ashley Adamson will lead the discussion, with input from other leading Newcastle University academics.

The Newcastle Discover Series will be held virtually and promoted in due course. To be the first to hear about our event, register your interest here.
