LOBE Medical and Clinical Education are proud to present the third Lifestyle Medicine Education Course for General Practice.


What is it about?

This one-day masterclass will provide busy GPs, Practice Nurses and Pharmacists with tools to tackle complex presentations with simple yet effective evidence derived lifestyle medicine interventions.

The increase in non-communicable disease and the rise in lifestyle related illnesses require a broad approach but with specific interventions.

    I would really like to attend this event. I am a Public Health Nutritionist, registered with the Association for Nutritionist. I co-direct a Charity called Health education Trust that is about health promotion and encourages young people to be their own health advocates. I have also been trained to run the RCGP course on youth health champions.
    My undergraduate degree was in Applied Human Nutrition, then I studied a Post Grad in Food Policy then another Post Grad in public health. I do hope that my qualifications and 15yrs experience of working in he nutrition field allows me to qualify to attend this event.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
