Nutritank was set-up after Bristol Medical School students, Iain Broadley and Ally Jaffee, learnt some medical students are receiving as little as eight hours of compulsory nutrition training out of the five or six years at medical school. Faced with rising levels of chronic disease, mainly related to poor diet and lifestyle, Nutritank has founded more than 20 medical school societies across the UK. The campaign is now feeding into the NHS long-term plan.
The charter, launched earlier this month by the British Medical Association following an Equality and Human Rights Commission report, sets out clear standards that medical schools need to follow to prevent racial harassment including providing support and training as well as how to respond when poor behaviour is seen or experienced.
Tech Tours offers primary and early secondary schools in the West of England the opportunity to spend a day at Engine Shed and Ultraleap for a variety of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths) activities, including a coding workshop and a visit to Ultraleap’s Experience Room to feel the magic of mid-air haptics and 3D tracking.
