7 Deadly Sins: GLUTTONY

Time: 6.15-9.00 pm
Venue: The ArtHouse Hotel
Price: RACGP memebr: $35 | Non member: $55

Designed to encourage new fellows to meet other new fellows, and be able to forge relationships with other GPs going through the same early career trials and tribulations. The events will be showcasing a range of Sydney bars and event spaces, with each event being at a new iconic Sydney location aiming to encourage casual interaction between presenters and participants.

Gluttony, traditionally looked at as obesity or eating disorders is the first session, here we aim to turn the sin around. Instead of the medical profession over investigating obesity, classing it as a 'chronic disease' and shaming the patient for their size, we embrace HAES (healthy at every size) as an EVIDENCE BASED medical culture where people of any size can embrace their bodies, their intuitive eating and joyful movement.
