After the meal, there will be some networking where you have the option to buy more refreshments if you so wish.
The topic of conversation will be “Health: We all have it, why don't we talk about it?” Join us along with members of The Conduit for a casual social supper club to explore the stigma of talking about health and the opportunities that might arise if we tackle this taboo.
