The conference will bring together an international line-up of experts at the historic venue.

Guest speakers include professor Robert Thomas, consultant oncologist, who will share insight with delegates into lifestyle, nutrition and cancer. Dr Ahmed El-Sohemy, an internationally renowned expert in nutritional genomics, will explore if genes determine what people should eat, while Dr Malcolm Kendrick author and GP, will talk about the causes of heart disease. Natural lifestyle educator and movement coach, Darryl Edwards, will share the health benefits of movement and physical activity.

Dr Rob Lawson, BSLM trustee and chairman, said: "Our primary objective is to raise awareness of Lifestyle Medicine principles and provide leadership, education and support for healthcare practitioners. With so much long term disease around, as practitioners, we can sometimes feel overwhelmed and ineffectual. This conference brings together inspirational speakers with practical solutions to 21st century healthcare problems.

"We acknowledge that there are social and environmental determinants of disease which should be addressed at national and international level so we hope that this conference will stimulate further discussion and insight on this important subject."

Martyn Bowen, venue manager at Engineers’ House, added: "To host such an international line-up of world-renowned experts at our historic venue is an absolute honour. Our location, parking, IT facilities and expertise continue to impact on our bookings. A warm welcome awaits all."
