SAAFoST Northern Branch Lecture Afternoon

"Take Control of Your Precious Health"

Speaker: Prof Nola Dippenaar (Health Insight)

CV - Prof Nola Dippenaar

Knowledge is the tool with which to control one's business and so too one's health. Within all sectors of society there is a huge need for insight and understanding into all health related matters, which would ultimately result in lifestyle changes that are truly sustainable. By investing in your personal wellness, you are taking out a policy on "living" with improved health and quality of life for the years ahead.

The hand of genes one was dealt with when conceived in your mother, plays a definite role in health, but ones overall lifestyle, from birth onwards, has an even more profound effect on health and longevity. All such lifestyle factors will be fully explored, which will include ways in which to keep our immune system functioning in optimal mode, and how to tame our stress levels.
