The forum will be broadcast:
- 9.06am on Friday 14 April (Good Friday), 2017.
- RNZ National (FM 101)

Healthier Lives Professor’s Jim Mann and Tony Blakely, and Professor Jacqueline Rowarth (Envrionmental Protection Authority), expertly chaired by renowned broadcaster Kim Hill, brought a real sense of energy and humour to this complex and controversial topic.
The result was a lively exposé of what we really know, and still don’t know, about the cost of sugar in our society.
Healthier Lives and A Better Start National Science Challenges, along with Edgar Diabetes and Obesity Research, originally presented this free public forum at Auckland City Hospital on Thursday 16 March, 2017.
