What’s it about?

Food is a key element of celebrating Diwali and is often central to family interactions and celebrations. Food is traditionally produced using recipes handed down over generations with people often unaware of alternative more healthy options of producing the same food in a different more healthy way. It is widely known that people from Minority Ethnic populations have worse cardiovascular outcomes and these can be associated with lifestyle factors. This session will raise awareness of these inequalities, provide opportunities for communities to participate in health research and interventions whilst participating in a community based session for all the family.
