Reflecting on BSLM2021

What a fabulous success BSLM Edinburgh 2021 was! Fabulous because you all agreed to come despite uncertain conditions, fabulous because of the speakers and the miracle of live streaming, and fabulous because of a tiny BSLM team of 7 (not all full-time) running around in the background to make things go smoothly and professionally.

We were delighted with the venue for both the conference and the dinner, which I believe shows that BSLM is really growing up and building on the incredible work of Rob Lawson and so many volunteers over the last 5 years.

We are also looking forward to receiving your feedback, good or bad, so we can make next year even better.

This coming year will prove to be a crucial time in the development of BSLM, with the groundwork laid in 2021 starting to come to fruition in 2022 and beyond. My personal aim is to grow BSLM whilst maintaining that friendly, family feel that has marked us out as an organisation.

Next year, London 2022. Bigger, better, friendlier, with more about BSLM’s strategy and more great science supporting Lifestyle Medicine. Thank you all and see you in London.
