Nutrition Department Away Day
Members of the CIRCLES Study team, along with others from the UEA Nutrition Department, spent an afternoon in Wroxham on 25th August 2015 for a spot of canoeing. We're a busy and hard working bunch so this was a real treat to spend time with colleagues; you can read a little more about this trip on our department website.
CIRCLES had a stall at this years Science in Norfolk, held at The Forum in Norwich. We took along lots of fresh blueberry tasters, challenged visitors of all ages with their word recall abilities and enabled them to measure their body composition!
