The Second Global Conference on Lifestyle and Health will take place in Geneva as a sequel to the 2009 meeting, which focused on Lifestyle as Primary Health Care. This time round the theme focuses on non-communicable diseases (NCDs) with specific emphasis on providing broad access to preventive lifestyle measures and interventions throughout the whole cycle of life.
In a pervasive global environment of profit-driven junk-food, tobacco, alcohol and a myriad of other questionable product driven advertising, special emphasis will be given to the importance of developing agents of change to lead the way in improving health.
Here is a small sampling of the world-renowned speakers highlighting this conference:
- Dr. Anselm Hennis, Director of the Department of Noncommunicable Diseases and Mental Health for the Pan American Health Organization will explore the challenges of NCDs and the need for access to life-changing health information.
- Dr. Gary Fraser, principal investigator of the Adventist Health Study 2 will share exciting insights and applications from this study to the prevention of NCDs.
- Dr. David Williams, of Harvard University will address vital aspects of engaging the community in battle with the health challenges of today.
Breakout sessions, useful tools and interventions, opportunities for networking with professionals from around the world are all features of this conference.
Your presence will help to make this an unforgettable and community changing experience.
