Royal Canin hits the road to tackle obesity
12th September 2018

Nine UK universities are to benefit from interactive lectures and an opportunity to tackle the most common disease vet students will diagnose after graduation – obesity.

Kicking off on October 17 at the Royal Veterinary College, Royal Canin’s Nutritional Roadshow tours the country, before the final session on November 26 at the University of Nottingham.
 
Lee Danks, scientific affairs manager for Royal Canin, said: “This year’s Roadshow offers all vet and vet nursing students the opportunity to learn more about obesity. Sessions with an expert in weight management and professional actor will teach students the essential communication skills required to save patients from a life of ill health.
 
“We are passionate about inspiring the next generation of vets and vet nurses, and the Roadshow allows us to reach out to thousands of students across the UK.”
 
Alongside the interactive session, expert speakers will provide insight into dealing with obesity in practice.
 
The Nutritional Roadshow is key to Royal Canin’s student outreach programme. The pet food manufacturer already support the vets of the future through the Student Ambassador Programme, which provides students with insights into cat and dog nutrition.
