NOT TO BE MISSED - a REAL CONVERSATION with the community and the average person wanting to learn more about heart disease and heart health management.

The question of what causes heart disease, especially atherosclerosis is one which scientists have been trying to answer for a long time. Recent advances in thinking and debunking of old science changes the way we think about this and therefore what to do about it.

For example, are fats (lipids) in the blood important? And how they get there in the first place. How does what we eat, exercise, and sleep affect us.

Be surprised, learn something new, and engage with Professor Grant Schofield in unconventional thinking about your health.

Grant's talk will be informative, exciting and in simple terms that a layperson can understand.

COMING NEXT THURSDAY to Mary Thomas Centre, 3 Gibbons Rd, Takapuna (behind the Takapuna Library)
WHEN: 5th August, 10:15 - 11:30am
WHERE: Upstairs conference room

Grant Schofield, PhD, Professor of Public Health, Director Human Potential AUT Millennium Centre, is an ex NZ representative sportsperson with a doctorate in Psychology and a passion for Public Health. Grant leads Masters and Doctoral research programmes on cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity and other metabolic disorders. He is particularly interested in the impact of nutrition and exercise on cardiovascular disease.

THIS IS A PUBLIC EVENT - ITS FREE AND EVERYONE IS WELCOME
