On 1 March 2017, we hosted the Big Fat Chat Live event at the Aquarius Ballroom in Hednesford, Cannock
We listened to your opinions on how we should tackle obesity in Staffordshire, where responsibilities lie and how far we are willing to go to make a positive change.
The event was streamed live, and you can now watch a replay of the live stream below
The expert panel
The debate was led by a panel of experts on the night who posed questions and shared different opinions along with those of the public in attendance.
The panel were:
- Dr Anne-Marie Holder (Local GP)
- Jane Deville-Almond (Chair of British Obesity Society)
- Amy Blount (Weight Watchers Lead)
- Karen Hansford (School Nurse Professional lead)
- Vittal Rao (Upper GI Bariatric Surgeon, University Hospital of North Midlands)
- David Elliot (Public Health Manager, Public Health England)
- Councillor Alan White (Cabinet Member for Health and Care, Staffordshire County Council)
At the event, we asked you to consider some tricky issues and share your opinion on them. There’s no real right or wrong, we wanted to hear your views, explore what it will take to tackle obesity in Staffordshire and start to agree who will take responsibility for what.
Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in the live debate.
