Warwick Medical School

Come and join us for a day dedicated to your wellbeing! There'll be stalls, freebies, competitions, demonstrations and practical taster sessions to get involved in, open to all Warwick staff and students. This year our focus is on food and nutrition, so there'll be plenty of food tasting during the day as well!

Once you've had a look through the programme we'd be grateful if you could fill out this form to let us know which sessions you're interested in coming to so we have an idea of numbers.

Wordsearch competition
Print a copy of our food and nutrition focused wordsearch and bring it along on the day for the chance to win a book token or a bottle of wine.
