Do your students sometimes need support to make the right decisions about lifestyle choices? Are they putting themselves at risk? Liver disease is on the increase among young people. It is the 5th largest cause of death in the UK and the only one that is continuing to rise.
From 2001 to 2012 there was a 40% increase in deaths – over 11,000 people a year die from liver disease. Society’s attitudes to alcohol, fatty and sugary food and the risk of viral hepatitis are all contributing to the ‘epidemic’. With so many people drinking too much and around one quarter of adults in the UK obese, many of us are at serious risk of developing liver disease.
British Liver Trust has worked with education professionals to produce a Liver Health Education Pack. Suitable for ages 11-18, the pack looks at the three main risk factors in a fun and engaging way, and can be downloaded here today.
The Liver Good Life pack contains
- An assembly
- A lesson plan
- Student worksheets
The pack also contains ideas for fundraising. Any funds raised will ensure British Liver Trust will be here long into the future.
