Healthy Choices offers talks on a variety of health issues which can affect every member of the family. These are provided by a nurse with many years experience in health promotion and disease prevention.
If you are a member of a community group, within a 25-mile radius of Bedford, UK and need a speaker, we may be able to help. Our talks are suitable for groups of any size, from a home setting to a community hall, daytime or evening.
We usually only charge expenses for the talks. Where appropriate, we offer an opportunity to raise funds for your group, or a charity or cause of your choice, by bringing along a variety of our products. We donate ten percent from any purchases made by members of your group.
Our current talks are:
