Description

The Impact Women’s Network brings together professional women for Impact Wednesday to hear the latest on entrepreneurship, business, research and much more. Impact Wednesday takes place the first Wednesday morning of every month (excluding January and August) at a different location. These morning meetings are grounded in women sharing their expertise as well as their experience through Impact Talks and group activities and discussions.

Impact Wednesday: June 5th 2019

The Nutrition Debate: Are we responsible for our own health and wellbeing?

Much of the illness and disease we see in the developed world is a result of the things we put in our mouths. So how do we empower and inspire people to make positive choices? It is said that it was only legislation that worked in the campaign against Drink Driving and Seatbelts. But while we can legislate against drugs and alcohol, can we do the same with food? Scientists publish opposing data which is slavishly followed, often in complete confusion - but, despite all the initiatives, the NHS is collapsing under the weight of food-related illness.

Hosted by The Møller Centre, June’s Impact Women’s Network event will see us debating, collaborating and hopefully taking a step towards possible “new” ideas, which just might work. There will be a panel of inspirational women to answer your questions on nutrition in a Question Time-style format. So, if you have an interest, an open mind and a desire to make a difference, please bring along your ideas and your willingness to be open, curious and collaborative in creating something new.

With our regular networking opportunities, as well as the chance to learn what you can do personally to improve your own health and wellbeing, this is an event not to be missed.

Please send your questions in advance to jill@coachyou.co.uk so that the panel can prepare accordingly.

She promises her clients clarity, direction and fulfilment. LinkedIn

A barrister by profession, Lisa Weston is a Nutrition and Wellbeing Consultant and a founding Trustee of the World Dignity Project (WDP), having previously served as the legal adviser to the Bi-Laws committee of the World Federation for Mental Health (WMHF). Working alongside leading medical professionals, the aim of WDP is to provide a platform for service users, carers and professionals to remove the stigma, discrimination and prejudice suffered by those with mental ill health. Lisa is passionate about educating and empowering individuals to take control of their wellbeing with a particular interest in the connection between nutrition and mental health. LinkedIn

Scandinavian-born chef and food writer, Tine Roche set up the Cambridge Cookery School in 2008 with the aim of inspiring healthy, seasonal and contemporary cooking. In 2015 she added her bakery, café, wine bar and Bistro, showcasing the brand focus on sustainable, locally-sourced food. Much of it is plant-based and leftovers are used to create 30 weekly meals for Jimmy’s Cambridge, supporting the homeless community. Last year, the business was proud to become the first Cambridge business with a zero food waste certificate.

Dr Sue Bailey is a local food scientist, lecturer, consultant and culinary historian, who aims to educate, inspire, enthuse and support foodies in the Cambridge area and beyond. With over 20 years’ experience working in food and consumer health research and education, she has been course director for a successful MSc in Food Science at London Metropolitan University. Her popular blog, Cambridge Foodies was born out of her lifelong passion for food, both professionally and creatively – and her television appearances have included Great British Bake Off (as a culinary history consultant) and Channel 4’s Food Unwrapped.

Dr Alex Davidson is a local GP with a huge passion for an inside-out approach to health. She believes that with a focus on gut health and the right nutrition, ill health - both physical and mental - can be improved, and that good health can be enhanced. Her interest in gut health and nutrition stems from her own experience as a patient, where she transformed her health and stopped all prescription medication using simple principles and high-quality supplements. She is nearing the end of her training in Functional Medicine at the Institute For Functional Medicine in America, which looks at how the environment, lifestyle and genetics interplay to lead to ill health – and continues to work as an NHS GP two days a week.
