Feed back from previous introductory talks:
“I found Rosie’s talk informative and interesting and an eye opener! Supported by statistics, the talk provided lots of information that I was unaware of with Alzheimer’s. Yes I am definitely going to implement some lifestyle changes”
“Talk was great, very interesting and good evidence and back-up for the claims. Its made me think about my diet and that of my children too.”
“Very informative, lots to think about. I am sure it would be beneficial to anyone.”
