    We conduct a lot of research into vitamin D at the University of Surrey and our key research work looking at diet and sunlight exposure on vitamin D levels in Caucasian and South Asian women (known as the DFINES study) has been an important piece of research for the UK.    Deborah proved herself to be a first rate research nutritionist on this project and was a very important member of the DFINES Research Team.    This work was recently cited in the new SACN Vitamin D requirements for the UK and is one of the largest longitudinal studies on vitamin D status in groups of different ethnicity.

    Deb worked with me in 2012 on background development work for the second wave of the Food Standard Agency’s Food and You survey.  Her help was invaluable; she helped me with a review of the literature looking at factors influencing food choices and public concerns about food risks.  Deb was great to work with and I couldn’t have done it without her!  Come back Deb.

    In 2016, Deborah assisted the Food Foundation in compiling two technical policy briefs (forthcoming) detailing the UK’s initiatives sugar sweetened beverage levy, and marketing restrictions convening the promotion of HFSS foods to children.  Deborah produced two high quality literature reviews, detailing the historic development of these policies, utilising the academic and grey literature available on these subjects.  These reviews will be utilised by the Food Foundation to generate demand for international learning and the exchange of best practice.

    Deborah David was the Guest Speaker at one of the meetings of our local Rotary Club where she gave an interesting and informative talk on her role as a dietitian. As a result of the excellent presentation given it prompted a search for answers to a variety of nutrition questions raised by those present and these were very ably provided.
