On Friday 21 April 2017 the Centre for History of Medicine at the University of Warwick is delighted to host a full-day event exploring the history of, and current policy around, diet and nutrition in institutions of care.

The speakers are joined by experts who will bring a historical perspective to the day: Professor Hilary Marland; Professor Rebecca Earle; Dr Jane Hand; and Professor Mathew Thomson, as well as Lucy Vincent from Food Behind Bars.
