It is now well recognised that a link exists between chronic, low-grade inflammation and a wide range of medical conditions and health issues, including cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune conditions, arthritis, and neurodegenerative diseases.

Damage to cells and tissues as a result of prolonged, low-grade inflammation can occur over many years before it becomes evident.
This course will take a look at what drives chronic systemic inflammation (SCI), the consequences of SCI, and what can be done to manage and prevent it
