UAS February 2023: The modernization of Västerbotten's FFQ, challenges and opportunities

Time Wednesday 8 February, 2023 at 12:00 - 13:00
Place Triple Helix (and Zoom)

Arctic Center and NEON present Maria Wennberg who will talk about a food frequency questionnaire.

Maria Wennberg is a doctor in Environmental medicine, and responsible for the modernization of Västerbotten's FFQ. FFQ is a food frequency questionnaire which is used in two large population-based surveys in the arctic parts of Sweden. The surveys have been ongoing since the mid-1980s and together they form the largest population-based dietary survey in the north. But how do you best reflect the eating habits of a northern population over time, when potatoes and rice have been replaced by quinoa and black pudding and palt has been replaced by quorn? A dilemma that Maria Wennberg will describe for us.

The lecture is a joint arrangement between the Arctic Centre and NEON, the network for nutritional epidemiology in Umeå.
