Collaborative programme provides Food for Thought

The FHT was delighted to attend the College of Medicine’s annual conference this September, which saw the premiere of Food for Thought, a news and current affairs style programme the College has produced in partnership with ITN Productions. Read more below.

Food for Thought

Social prescribing may have the capability of improving the health and daily lives of individuals and of communities across the country, particularly in areas of high deprivation where feelings of isolation are common. ‘Food for thought’ explores mainstream approaches to diet, looking at the dietary supplement industry for example, where 1 in 3 people buy supplements regularly, the programme reviews the vast range of minerals available in the marketplace. The piece demonstrates how the food we put on our plate could contribute to preventative medicine and maintain health and wellbeing.

Hosted by Natasha Kaplinsky, the programme explores the benefits of social prescribing, an alternative approach to healthcare.
