British Society of Lifestyle Medicine Webinars
In 2021, making sure we stay connected and keep learning has never been more important. During the Covid-19 pandemic we have all had to find new ways to keep in touch - and thanks to the wonders of modern technology we’ve adapted and made the best of difficult circumstances.
In 2021, making sure we stay connected and keep learning has never been more important. During the Covid-19 pandemic we have all had to find new ways to keep in touch – and thanks to the wonders of modern technology we’ve adapted and made the best of difficult circumstances, to ensure you can still achieve your CPD targets and identify further opportunities to integrate Lifestyle Medicine in to your practice.
While there have been challenges – there have also been opportunities.
Here at BSLM we want to make sure that members of our community can regularly come together – to share our knowledge and our experiences and to keep the lifestyle medicine conversation going.
With this in mind we are launching a series of webinars during 2021 – and we hope you can join us.
The seventh webinar is planned for 7pm October 19th and will feature talks from Dr Ellen Fallows and Dr Angela Goyal. This webinar will only be available to current BSLM members
- Health Inequalities – Dr Ellen Fallows
- Why the NHS needs LM to meet its long term plan – Dr Angela Goyal
I’ve been a GP partner for 10 years in a large practice in Oxfordshire. My interest in lifestyle medicine comes from having been the lead Diabetes GP and working with a number of her patients to help support them to put their chronic diseases into remission with supported lifestyle-change. I’ve been involved in primary care research, including trials piloting primary care support for dietary change to treat hypertension, obesity and type-2 diabetes as part of the DROPLET and DIAMOND studies.
Angela is a Portfolio GP and has an extended role in Dermatology. She has had an interest in Lifestyle Medicine for many years – starting in childhood! Her parents did not have a medicine cupboard. Although Angela did not appreciate it back then, she was raised to consume various traditional Indian spices and nutritious foods to combat illness.
Prehab and Rehab
We will be hosting one webinar each month as well as a monthly session for those of you considering taking the lifestyle medicine diploma.
Each session will be an opportunity to explore some of the key lifestyle medicine topics. As well as hearing from experts, clinicians, researchers and scientists there will be an opportunity to ask questions and engage in constructive dialogue.
We will be posting details of future webinars on this page including a link for you to register.
We welcome your feedback on the webinars as well as suggestions for future topics and speakers. Please get in touch with the BSLM office if you have any suggestions or would be keen to be a Speaker for one of these events.
BSLM2021 Annual conference
Our monthly webinars will also be an opportunity to build momentum and discussion ahead of our annual conference which takes place in Edinburgh this September.
We hope the webinars will provide an opportunity for you to meet virtually with other BSLM members and to get the conversation going ahead of conference.
We will also be taking the opportunity to introduce to some of the speakers we have lined up for conference during the webinar.
Webinar Topic Schedule
Recordings of the presentations from that month’s webinar are found below. Each Webinar has a live Q&A element which is not included in the recordings below. In order to gain maximum value from our Webinars we’d love you to register on the night and have the opportunity to raise questions relevant to your role or focus area.
