This week Daisy is reporting back from the Public Health Collaboration Conference held in London and is joined by Louise Reynolds for an overview.
The Public Health Collaboration is a charity dedicated to informing and implementing healthy decisions for better public health. In the UK 25% of adults are obese – the highest prevalence in Europe – and Type 2 Diabetes has risen 65% in the past 10 years with no sign of slowing down. Both cost the NHS 16 billion pounds a year. The PHC publish evidence-based reports on the most pressing public health issues alongside coordinated campaigns and implementing initiatives for improving public health. The director – Sam Feltham – ran a fitness boot camp for 5 years which he closed in March 2016 to focus fully on running the PHC. The founding members are a combination of medical professionals all dedicated to pushing for real change. You can find out more about the PHC and show your support by subscribing to the newsletter for just a pound at PHCUK.org or donate more to get all sorts of other goodies.
