DR ANGELA GOYAL
FOUNDER OF INSPIRED MEDICS
Angela set up Inspired Medics to provide GPs with CPD - with a difference.
Over the past few years Angela has developed a keen interest in Lifestyle Medicine. But she found that, although well evidenced, there is a lack of training in this in medical curricula.
And so she set out to create Lifestyle Medicine CPD events that were inspirational, fun and motivational, and that combined CPD with time to connect with other likeminded medics... and so Inspired Medics was born.
Our first national event was the Portfolio GP Careers Conference, inspired by Angela's own Portfolio career. The feedback for this event was tremendous. Our subsequent Lifestyle Medicine Conference attracted 250 Healthcare Professionals from the UK and abroad, and we have since developed two digital courses.

A FRESH APPROACH TO LIFESTYLE MEDICINE
Angela's approach to Lifestyle Medicine
Angela believes in encouraging lifestyle interventions from her patients with chronic disease.
She is also active in promoting the Lifestyle Medicine message more widely amongst the public, through the media and to medical professionals.
Her approach is really to remind us that these interventions are an essential part of managing our patients. Understanding the wider determinants of health, as well as the individual patient's resources and preferences is vital.
And the way that we communicate with our patients around lifestyle interventions is essential to their effectiveness - and to avoiding any feeling of blame.
