World Cancer Research Fund UK presents a FREE one day event for anyone working to improve the health of their local community

With worldwide cancer cases expected to increase by 70 per cent in the next 20 years, and an annual cost to the NHS of £5 billion, it has never been more important to put cancer prevention at the top of the health agenda.

In fact, the World Health Organization has said that it's 'implausible' to think that we can treat our way out of cancer and that the focus must now be on preventing new cases.

Thankfully, scientists estimate that, if everyone ate well, moved more and stayed in shape, about 1 in 3 of the most common cancers in the UK could be prevented.

This equates to about 89,000 cancer cases every year — enough to fill the Olympic Stadium!

A healthy lifestyle can also prevent a range of other life-threatening conditions, including heart disease and Type 2 diabetes.

Increasingly, all health professionals are being called on to 'make every contact count' — to put wellbeing at the heart of every patient interaction — regardless of their area of expertise.

That is why World Cancer Research Fund would like to invite you to join us to learn more about how people can lower their cancer risk and how, together, we can start them on their journey to better health.
