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; from 2001 to 2012 there was a 40% increase in deaths
Society’s attitudes to alcohol, fatty and sugary food and the risk of viral hepatitis are all contributing to the ‘epidemic’. With 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 Information 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 for free.
The Liver Good Life pack contains an assembly, a lesson plan, student worksheets and handouts.
The pack also contains ideas for fundraising. Any funds raised will ensure British Liver Trust will be here long into the future.
Fundraising at school could be as simple as a non-uniform day or a sponsored walk round the playing fields. a donation of £200, for example, could support our Love Your Liver campaign to reduce the number of people affected by this devastating disease, which can lead to liver cancer.
