Topic for next Public Health Twitter Journal Club chat will be TV food advertising and children. This is in the spirit of our ‘in the news’ topics following a recommendation that pre ‘watershed’ advertising for unhealthy food and drink be banned in the UK to limit children’s exposure.

Journal club will take place on Tuesday 26th February at 8.00 GMT.

Please help us select which paper to focus on by voting in the poll (full details of each paper are provided underneath the poll).
