We warmly invite you to our symposium organized during the 5th Edition of the International Chair on Cardiometabolic Risk (ICCR) Congress, which is now entitled “ICCR Congress on Chronic Societal Cardiometabolic Diseases”. This symposium will address the latest evidence on yogurt consumption and its impact on type 2 diabetes. It will be supported by YINI and Danone Institute Canada.

The global conference is jointly organized by the ICCR and the Réseau de recherche en santé cardiométabolique, diabète et obésité (CMDO) (Cardiometabolic Health, Diabetes and Obesity Network). The ICCR is a multidisciplinary academic organisation based at the Centre de recherche de l’Institut universitaire de cardiologie et de pneumologie de Québec  which is affiliated with the Faculty of Medicine of Université Laval  located in Québec City, Canada.

In collaboration with Danone Institute Canada, YINI will bring you the most recent epidemiological data illustrating the beneficial effects of regular yogurt consumption in type 2 diabetes prevention. International nutrition experts will review the current evidence and discuss underlying mechanisms.
