Dawn Harper:  Live Well to 101

We are living longer than ever before so it's more important than ever that we take good care of our bodies and our health - and enjoy those extra years by keeping fit and well for as long as possible. Leading media medic, Dr Dawn Harper, from Channel 4s Embarrassing Bodies shows you how to invest in your health now to improve your chances of enjoying life in your later years to the full.

Dr Dawn Harper draws on scientific research, her eight years experience on Channel 4s Embarrassing Bodies and over twenty-one years as an NHS and private GP to give you the latest advice on diet, exercise and lifestyle choices that have been clinically proven to improve longevity and quality of life.

She will answer the following questions:

*If longevity is pre-programmed in your genes, is there anything you can do to change it?

*Do people who have more sex live longer?

*Does where you live make a difference?

*What is a healthy diet?

*Is it worth paying for private health care or expensive medical scans?

*What can we learn from people who are living well to an older age?

*Will getting a dog or cat add years to your life?

This Year's Events

Feedback

I thoroughly enjoyed all six events I attended and would have done many more if my time had allowed. Congratulations to all the people involved for a very well organised event. I am most certainly looking forward to next year's events calendar- the dates are already in my diary.

Feedback From 2016 Festival

All of us in the Hardy Society were very positive about 'our' first night and the subsequent events. I thought Tony's event with Rachel and Dinah worked very well with interesting conversations from the both of the women.

You and Paul must be very happy with the positive way Dorchester people are continuing to embrace the Festival, and in impressively increasing numbers. Congratulations to both of you.

Next year's dates are already in our diaries and we are looking forward to meeting up with you soon to discuss our involvement.

I very much enjoyed giving my talk and meeting you and all your colleagues. I can think of no way you could have been more accommodating.
