The key to unlocking optimal health – The life course paradigm

As physicians and paediatricians, we care for patients struggling with preventable illness every day. We know that unhealthy housing, insecure and precarious work and poor mental health directly impact our patient’s health and wellbeing. Too often we treat illness knowing our patients are returning to social situations that will perpetuate poor health. We need to challenge the current state, where unacceptable levels of child poverty and poor housing conditions have become normalised. Our expert panel will be interviewed by renowned journalist Susie Ferguson on their thoughts, views and solutions on ‘Make Health the Norm’.

Obesity: Rising to the challenge

Unhealthy diets are major contributors to obesity, diabetes, dental caries, cardiovascular diseases, mental health conditions and many cancers – the very diseases which fill our hospital beds and general practice clinics and swamp the health budget. Physicians and paediatricians see patients and families every day who are struggling with obesity and related health conditions. Where does the RACP stand on obesity? Why are our current approaches failing? How are we failing our own doctors struggling with obesity? Hear firsthand from consumers who have experienced weight stigma and bias, gain insight from specialists working on the ground to tackle the obesity issue and walk away with tools to help you change your practice.

The first 1000 days – the window of opportunity for long term health

All children, no matter where they live or who they are, should have the same opportunity to fulfill their potential. Many children who experience inequities in health are also disadvantaged in accessing health care, leading to problems now and into the future. What are the origins of adult disease and how do epigenetics affect pre and post-natal epigenetic profiles? What does the Dunedin Study show us? How do we address these inequities in our communities? Listen to our expert speakers as they explore how we can address and make positive changes to what could be the most important years of our patients lives.
