Gain a better understanding
We run lectures, workshops and seminars for health and social care practitioners and members of the public.
Lectures, workshops and seminars for the public
Lorraine Nicolle writes and delivers lectures, workshops and seminars on a range of nutritional health issues.
Her aim is to help individuals gain a better understanding of how to eat healthily in order to better manage their symptoms, achieve greater energy levels and get more out of life.
Many of these events are sponsored by businesses and other institutions who see healthy eating as an important part of their employee welfare programmes.
