Changing behaviours, changing lives
Public Health England asks ‘How Are You?’ in latest campaign
A GP turned broadcaster is backing the latest Public Health England campaign to get people to take control of their health now, to enjoy the benefits later.
‘One You’ is the biggest campaign since Change4Life and is reaching out to members of the South Asian communities, who are at higher risk of suffering from preventable diseases compared to the general population.
Via an online test, ‘One You’ gives people the chance to reappraise their lifestyle choices, put themselves first and do something about their own health before it’s too late.
It is well reported that South Asian people are more likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease.
Modern day life makes it hard for people to live healthily, with bigger portions for everything we eat, a desk-bound job or a long commute.
GP and Broadcaster, Dr Radha Modgil has joined other celebrities such as The Hairy Bikers, Actress Linda Robson and football pundit Chris Kamara to encourage people to take a moment in their busy lives to ask themselves an important question we rarely have time to consider seriously: ‘How Are You?’, and help people make healthy changes by taking the new ‘How Are You’ online health quiz.
Dr Modgil said: “I’m pleased to be supporting One You, it’s a fantastic campaign which empowers people to make simple changes that can benefit their health and wellbeing now and in the future.
“Many diseases that affect South Asian people and shorten their active lives can be prevented by making simple healthier choices like being more active, eating well, drinking less alcohol and being smoke free.”
