Cardiff University’s Professional Development Team hosted a one hour Medical Risk: Lifestyles webinar on Friday 28th March, exploring the links between various lifestyle choices and health. Dr Niven-Jenkins led a discussion on today’s ‘hot’ topics of obesity, diet, activity levels, alcohol consumption and smoking, assessing their impact on medical risk. The webinar was attended by medical underwriters and insurers and was delivered as part of an ongoing suite of Assessing and Managing Medical Risk programmes.
The webinar was a great success attracting top insurance companies from across the United Kingdom and Ireland. The new corporate booking option was well-received with several organisations choosing to screen the event to groups of colleagues, creating a shared learning environment. There was a high level of participation from all attendees, with submission of some discussion-generating questions such as ‘have the introduction of e-cigarettes helped to combat the bad effects of smoking?’
Delegates from Legal and General commented: ‘Legal & General Bristol loved it!’; ‘The webinar provided appropriate and useful information that will assist in risk assessment.’
Business Development Manager, Clare Sinclair, said: “Cardiff University has a track record in delivering award winning and innovative professional development. Offering the suite of Medical Risk Webinars is a natural progression for us. The webinar enables the delivery of a concise learning experience and gives maximum impact while causing minimal disturbance to the working day.”
