Health and Well-being talk - Wednesday 17th January 8pm, Freshford Memorial Hall

posted 8 Jan 2018, 00:33 by Parish Council Communications
Freshford School and Pre-school are hosting a talk by local GP Dr Campbell Murdoch about health, well-being and diet for children and families. Dr Campbell Murdoch is a Somerset-based GP who is passionate about the treatment and prevention of chronic diseases through lifestyle interventions. In particular, he has led the way in reversing type 2 diabetes in his patients through dietary changes – something he was taught was unachievable during his medical training.

The talk will include:
  • an overview of the Human 5 model of health and well-being.
  • an explanation of some of the myths about what a healthy diet is.
  • ideas to empower individuals and our community to make a difference to the food environment created for our children.
  • opportunities for questions and discussion.

To understand more about the importance of teaching our children healthy habits from an early age, we encourage all parents and carers to attend.
