Monthly Meeting – Tuesday 8th September 2015
Talk by Dr Steve Cleland - "Health Trust Information"

Our meeting at Littleton on 8th September was very stimulating and covered a lot of ground about the importance of maintaining good health and exercise as we get older. The team of presenters was led by Dr Steve Cleland and covered how a sensible diet helps you to keep a healthy weight to try and prevent heart problems and diabetes.

Exercise was also discussed and finally we had a presentation which gave us an insight into how immunisation and inoculation works.

It was an extended afternoon, but well worth the effort of both the presenters and the audience. We learnt a lot, which is after all one of the objects of the U3A.

The following websites were drawn to our attention as sources of information on healthy living. Members may find it of interest to consult them:
