In this live webinar, we’ll be joined by Professor Ron Maughan, Emeritus Professor of Sports and Exercise Nutrition at the University of Loughborough, and Chair of the European Hydration Institute’s Science Advisory Board.  He’ll be discussing recently released research that demonstrates the effect hydration can have on our health, wellbeing and performance.

Also in the studio will be Professor Monty Mythen, of University College London Hospital, to explore why hydration doesn’t receive the same amount of focus from researchers, doctors and the media as healthy nutrition, and why it should.
