Food is served at 7.00pm, with the main talks starting at 7.30pm:
 
7.00pm - Dr J McCormack- GP
Can the food you eat affect your joint health? EBM suggests it can. An expert patient with psoriatic arthritis will tell you his story and I will show you the evidence and show how it saved my previous practice £9k in drug costs alone.

7.20pm - Expert Patient
An expert diabetic patient shows us the effects of different meals on his blood glucose with continuous blood glucose monitoring and how his blood glucose is mostly a flat line within the normal range. He even can tell you how the NICE guidance changed in December 2015 to low GI for T2DM and carb counting for T1DM and about how we can contribute to the EBM.

7.30pm - Dr David Unwin - Award Winning GPSI Diabetes, Founding Member of the PHC, @lowcarbGP

David says he has a lot more professional satisfaction now and we could all do with more of that! Using simple psychology to enable change with your diabetic and overweight patients using Low Carb, Healthy Fat ways of eating. David does this and saved £40,000+ on his latest diabetes drug bill, and his NHS practice have the best outcomes and the lowest spend in his area.
 
8.00pm - Dr Malcolm Kendrick - Author of the Great Cholesterol Con & Doctoring Data, www.drmalcolmkendrick.org
