Changing the conversation about health

Video blog: Dr Michael Dixon reflects on an ‘active’ year – and highlights new causes for 2020

The College of Medicine’s Chair Dr Michael Dixon has delivered a seasonal message reflecting on a ‘really active’ year for the organisation, and congratulating members on the great strides made on increasing awareness of social prescription and the role food plays in our health.


He said: “It’s been a really active year, with lots of conferences, lots of courses and great things going on – all the way from the Integrated Schools Project in Cornwall to introducing yoga and massage in West London (at the St Charles Centre for Health and Wellbeing in North Kensington).

“All of this has been possible because of the support given by members, activators and those who’ve attended our events,” he added.

The College of Medicine’s Chair said he hoped attentions would focus in 2020 on new areas; including finding ways to make agriculture more sustainable and helping to tackle climate change.
