Description

If you only go to one event this April – make it be this: the UK's first ever National Undergraduate Lifestyle Medicine Conference is set for Saturday 27th April 2019 in London.

KCL Lifemed and NULMS are bringing together the top influencers and leaders in lifestyle medicine to show you how to eat, sleep, move and relax your way to health, allowing you to spice up your own life – as well as your clinical practice. We have some groundbreaking speakers and workshops up our sleeve, so be sure to mark the date in your diaries and keep checking this page and our social media for announcements. Trust us, you won't want to miss this.

This event is aimed primarily at medical students and students in other healthcare disciplines, but we're also welcoming students without a medical background who are interested in the area of lifestyle medicine. No longer a student? Not a problem: we have a set number of tickets for BSLM members and the public.

Please note that refreshments will be available during the breaks and lunch will be provided. Seats are not allocated prior to the event and will be available on a first come first served basis on the day.

This page will be updated periodically over the upcoming weeks – so be sure to keep visiting. Full speaker/workshop lineup released soon!

Released speakers:

Dr Aseem Malhotra

Know of Dr Aseem Malhotra yet? Chances are you have, and if you haven't, here's why you should. He's one of the world's leading cardiologists and the founding member of the Action on Sugar campaign. He's written numerous articles for worldwide press about the prevention of heart disease and obesity, and has made many TV appearances to discuss the matter. He also sits on the advisory board for Saving Londoners Lives. If you're not already exhausted by his long list of achievements, just know that this is a taster of the good work Aseem has done.

Find him on Twitter @DrAseemMalhotra and Instagram: lifestylemedicinedoctor

Nick Littlehales

Nick Littlehales. If that name sounds familiar it could be because he's bestselling author of 'Sleep: the myth of 8 hours' – a book which suddenly got the world talking about why we need to wake up to the power of sleep. He's also former chairman of the UK sleep council and a leading sleep coach to the sporting world, having worked with recording-breaking cyclists, top Premiership and international football teams and players, Rugby Union and Rugby League, and Olympic and Paralympic athletes. We're excited to hear we can improve our own sleep hygiene to properly help spice up our lifestyle.

Zoe Williams

Dr Zoe Williams is no stranger to a challenge. During her junior doctor years she featured as ‘Amazon’ in the Sky 1 TV show ‘Gladiators’. While she has now hung up the lycra, she continues to work in media and broadcast, regularly featuring on ITV’s This Morning, BBC Horizon and “Trust Me I’m A Doctor”. Aside from her media commitments, Zoe is a clinical champion for the RCGP’s clinical priority ‘Physical Activity and Lifestyle’ and works as a GP in South London. She is passionate about raising awareness of why physical activity and lifestyle changes are so important, for both disease prevention and treatment.

Pixie Turner

Meet Pixie Turner, aka @pixienutrition, aka no-nonsense nutritionist. In a world full of 'clean eating' and demonised food groups, she is a welcome voice of reason to help navigate through the nutribollocks of today. In addition to debunking misleading nutritional information, she's also featured as a nutrition expert on BBC and Channel 5, and in publications such as Red magazine, Evening Standard, Grazia, the Telegraph and more. Her first book, ‘The Wellness Rebel’ was published early 2018, with her second book, ‘The No Need to Diet Book’ out later this month – we've got it on our wish lists!

Dr Chris Lutterodt

Chris Lutterodt completed his surgical training at Guy's and St Thomas' hospital, before undertaking a Sports, Exercise and Health MSc at UCL. A keen sportsman himself (he represented the University of London Boat Club), he's worked with elite athletes using exercise to improve health and prevent disease. Overall, Chris aims to provide evidence-informed lifestyle advice – to his patients and to the public – as a means to prevent and treat disease.

Alan Flanagan

Alan Flanagan is a man of many talents. A lawyer originally by trade, he then decided to use his investigative and logical skills in a new field: nutrition. He's currently pursuing a PhD in nutrition at the University of Surrey, having previously completed a masters in Nutritional Medicine. Alan aims to communicate the often complicated world of nutritional science for healthcare professional and lay person alike – so we are all armed against nutritional controversies when they arise in the news.

Dr Brendon Stubbs

Dr Brendon Stubbs. Name ring any bells? If it doesn't, then perhaps his research does. Brendon's research focuses primarily on the link between physical activity and mental heath, and has been published in over 450 academic papers. It's been featured in the New York Times, TIME magazine, Forbes, CNN, Men’s Health, BBC news, ITV news and Sky News (among others). When he's not busy talking (or writing) about the mind-body interface, he's also Head of Physiotherapy at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation trust and clinical lecturer at King's College London. What a CV, eh. With more than 15 years experience in mental health, you can be sure you're learning from the best.
