Iodine Global Network Symposium on Iodine and Pregnancy

for health professionals

17 March 2016

at the

Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, London.

There is concern about iodine deficiency in UK pregnant women.  A number of studies have found that UK pregnant women are mildly-to-moderately iodine deficient. This is a concern as a study published in the Lancet in 2013 showed that iodine deficiency in pregnancy was linked to lower IQ and reading ability in children up to 9 years.

This symposium will bring together experts from across Europe to discuss issues around iodine deficiency in pregnant women. Several members of the UK Iodine Group will be speaking, including Professor John Lazarus, Dr Mark Vanderpump, Dr Sarah Bath, Professor Margaret Rayman, Mr Michael Marsh, and Professor Kate Jolly.

This event is available for health professionals only. The full programme of the event is here and registration is now open. Please register by completing the registration form before Monday 29 February.

The Iodine Global Network is a non-profit, non-government organisation for the sustainable elimination of iodine deficiency worldwide.
