Prescribing Lifestyle Medicine – a journey into the future of primary health care
Saturday 1st July 2017 | 10am – 5pm
County Hall, Belvedere Road, London, SE1 7PB
The root cause of chronic disease often starts with dietary and lifestyle choices. This is now the consensus among the majority of medical and social science experts who agree that although the structure of medicine works well for acute illness, other ways of working must be adopted to stem the rise in chronic disease – which now represents 63% of all deaths worldwide (WHO 2013).
This CPD practitioner education event is for all health professionals who are interested in advancing their own knowledge surrounding the supporting of chronic diseases through nutrition and lifestyle factors.
Join Rangan and a panel of experienced clinicians to discuss the evolution of lifestyle medicine, and be part of creating the fabric of future primary care in the 21st century. The panel will include Dr Ayan Panja, Amanda Williams and Miguel Toribio-Mateas.
5 BANT & RCGP CPD hours.
– (£55 for students)
A healthy lunch and refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
Please note that this event is exclusively for health professionals.
About the day
“After 14 years practising medicine, I believe a new approach to achieving and maintaining health is necessary. Rather than suppressing symptoms, I focus on finding the root cause of disease.” – Dr Rangan Chatterjee
As star of the primetime BBC series ‘Doctor in the House’- which aired for its second series on Monday 15th May – Dr Rangan Chatterjee shines arguably the most public and positive light on functional medicine in the United Kingdom and is an established thought leader in the field of preventive medicine. At our upcoming practitioner event Dr Chatterjee will discuss the evolution of lifestyle medicine and the central role that nutrition lifestyle and the health of the microbiome have had on his own professional journey.
Through Dr Chatterjee’s presentation, interactive case studies, and panel discussions involving experienced clinicians and nutritional therapists you will learn how appropriate dietary and lifestyle interventions can become key in stemming the rise of chronic disease, and how these can be applied in your own practice. Become a part of creating the fabric of future primary care in the 21st century.
The panel will include Dr Ayan Panja, a GP and BBC News presenter; Amanda Williams, Technical Director of Cytoplan; and Miguel Toribio-Mateas, an expert nutrition practitioner and Chairman of BANT.
