Infographics

Infographics are a great way of making complex scientific research easier to understand and digest.

 

Tom creates infographics in his spare time to promote science-based education regarding the fields

of nutrition, training, performance and health, making research more accessible to the general public

with interests in those areas.

 

The infographics are also posted on the TEC Nutrition social media pages but on this dedicated page

you can search for specific topic using the search by tags list below.
