COVID19: Nutrition Resources

NNEdPro Dedicated Microsite V40

Last updated on 21/12/2023

CLOSING STATEMENT

NNEdPro is a global organisation headquartered in the UK, with both central and regional networks spanning six continents. In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the COVID-19 taskforce was set up and has, over the years, identified areas for research and evidence synthesis relating to nutritional aspects of the prevention and treatment of COVID-19. This page was designed to signpost NNEdPro members, collaborators and stakeholders towards various helpful resources, including those from other organisations and scientific publications from NNEdPro, including an audiobook on COVID-19 and nutrition, which is still available here​.

This is to officially announce that this Taskforce closed in the month of June 2023. The material and useful resources are still available on our dedicated microsite page until May 2023. We would like to thank all the past and current members of the task force who dedicated their time and resources to making this possible.

Dr Ebiambu Agwara, Co-Chair (Executive).
