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 third webinar is planned for 7pm June 15th and will feature talks from two of our members – Darryl Edwards and Dr Hugh Bethell. This webinar will only be available to current BSLM members
- Physical Activity – Darryl Edwards (movement coach and author)
- Prehab and Rehab – Hugh Bethell (MD FRCP FRCGP)
Darryl Edwards is a former investment banking technologist turned movement coach and author. He is the founder of the Primal Play Method and a physical activity, health and play researcher.

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.
