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 fourth webinar is planned for 7pm July 20th and will feature talks from two of our members – Despina Marselou and Sheena Fraser. This webinar will only be available to current BSLM members
- Microbiome science – Sheena Fraser
- Microbiome and nutrition – Despina Marselou
I am a GP Partner and trainer with an interest in Lifestyle medicine and Dermatology and minor surgery. I practice in a small urban surgery in Glasgow. I am particularly interested in focusing on the root causes of disease with an aim to improving health prevention and managing disease in a more holistic way. I am very interested in food and how we can use diet to improve disease management.
Despina Marselou studied in the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics at London Metropolitan University in England and her clinical research,”Thermogenesis, Obesity and the Macro-metabolic Pathways: Relation to Obesity”, was published in 2004 in the journal of the British Dietetic Association as one of the best clinical trials among young graduates in the UK. She received a Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition and Immunology from the University of Surrey in England with emphasis on dietary support and behaviour modification in patients with immune system disorders such as diabetes, cancer and autoimmune diseases.

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.
