Nutrition, the gut microbiome and bowel cancer: what should we tell our patients?

Bowel cancer claims the lives of 5,336 Australians every year (103 a week), including 272 people under the age of 50. Statistics for Kiwis are not much better, with New Zealand having one of the highest rates in the world. This webinar will explore how food can help save lives by reducing the risk of bowel cancer.

Join consultant gastroenterologist Dr Alan Desmond to learn:

- The healthcare burden of colorectal cancer in high income countries including Australia and New Zealand

- The roles that common dietary components play in influencing the risk of developing colorectal cancer

- How to provide clear evidence-based diet and lifestyle advice to help patients and clients reduce their personal risk

Following Dr Desmond’s presentation, you will have the opportunity to have your questions answered live.

This educational activity is accredited by the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine for two PDP hours (including pre-activity).
