Adiposity, diabetes & premature death among 150,000 Mexicans
Adiposity, diabetes, and premature death among 150,000 Mexican adults recruited into a blood-based prospective study
We are hosting a seminar to present findings from a contemporary cohort of adults from a high-middle-income country that in the last few decades has experienced a major epidemiological transition from communicable to non-communicable diseases.
This workshop will describe the burden and effects of adiposity and diabetes in a cohort of 150,000 Mexican adults recruited into a blood-based cohort study between 1998 and 2004.
The event is for those interested in research focussing on the major preventable risk factors for premature mortality in developing nations.
Information about speaker: Louisa is an alumna of the School. For the previous 10 years she worked in large epidemiological studies of non-communicable diseases with Imperial College London. Her interests include premature mortality from adiposity, hypertension and diabetes, novel disease models and bio-marker signatures, and translation of research into public health policy. Current work focuses on the effects of adiposity on mortality in a large prospective cohort of Mexican adults co-ordinated by the Clinical Trial Service Unit and Epidemiological Studies Unit at the Nuffield Department of Population Health, University of Oxford.
