How Food Affects Your Brain: The Role of Nutrition and Diet in the Mental Health Crisis - BOOK HERE

Information For Doctors/Health Professionals

FAB Research helps doctors and other health professionals to keep abreast of new research into the role of nutrition and diet in mental, as well as physical health.  Formal education and training in medicine and allied areas still includes relatively little about nutrition, especially for psychological and psychiatric conditions.

Here, we provide interested health professionals worldwide with free access to a huge and evergrowing library of research evidence linking food, diet and nutrition to brain health and behaviour, helping them to gain:

  • fast access to the latest studies and their conclusions
  • links to online research articles (many open-access)
  • links to relevant news stories where possible
  • expert commentary and cross-references - to help find related articles, and to provide context and perspective 

Mental heath and wellbeing is key to successful management of any health condition, so this information is relevant to general medicine and most specialisms, as well as to psychiatry, psychology, nutrition and dietetics.  

Our unique, evidence-based information services are available free of charge to all health professionals interested in the possibilities of nutritional support and dietary interventions.

We also provide webinars, lectures and other events, as well as bespoke education and training courses for health professionals, staff and students.  Our international network of expert speakers includes some of the world's leading researchers and professionals in this field. 

Please get in touch for more details of how we can help you with input or speakers for your own courses or events.
