What is it about?

This one-day masterclass will provide busy GPs with tools to tackle complex presentations with simple yet effective evidence derived lifestyle medicine interventions.

The increase in non-communicable disease and the rise in lifestyle related illnesses require a broad approach but with specific interventions.
