‘Q&A panel’

The event, which takes place at King’s College Hospital in London, covers topics such as ‘How to keep your brain young’, ‘The Nutritional Reversal of Cardiovascular Disease’, ‘Farming for a plant-based food system’, and a Q&A panel.

A plant-based lunch and refreshments will be provided, and guests are encouraged to bring their own reusable mugs and water bottles.
