Changing the conversation about health


The Power of Eating Well

We believe that healthy food could save millions from chronic ill health and degenerative disease. A growing coalition of scientists, doctors, researchers, farmers – as well as traditional food specialists – are increasingly championing food as a health strategy.

As well as traditional good advice such as ‘eat your vegetables’ there is growing evidence about the importance of gut bacteria – and contested areas, particularly around fat, sugar and the role of isolated vitamins.

What we are doing: our annual food conference

The College of Medicine has now hosted five of its popular food conferences. In June 2023, we’ll return with our one-day Food on Prescription conference at the Integrative Personalised Medicine, an in-person event in central London.

Highlighting the importance of good nutrition for health, the Food on Prescription conference is a must attend event for all healthcare professionals looking to create a healthier future for their patients, communities and nation. Find out more here.
