We have been in Brisbane the last few days and having some great discussions.
My national Australian Orthopaedic Association is on this week and I presented my Nutrition and Cancer talk in the tumour section. There were some good discussions that followed. We might be getting some traction.
Belinda and I met up with Dr David Johnson (Brisbane Neurosurgeon), his wife Jo and Mairee McNeil, CEO of the Brisbane Private Hospital.
We were there for a Q&A session that followed a screening of That Sugar Film
The Brisbane Private Hospital has adopted some real changes over the last few months. They have a real awareness campaign on the sugar content of food and have switched sparkling water for sugar sweetened soft drinks in a few environments.
The hospital chef has a low carb option on every meal and it is not costing more. Interestingly, they have decreased their wastage.
We will continue to liaise.
