Welcome to Nutritank Community & Courses

Award Winning Lifestyle Medicine Community for qualified healthcare professionals and students

About Us

We bring together qualified healthcare professionals and students (medical / nursing / AHP) with a desire to master the basics of discussing nutrition and lifestyle medicine with their patients to share inspiration, practical experience, and challenges with each other. So that we can become more effective at activating patients towards better self-care and improve our own wellbeing.  

Nutritank CIC was founded by two NHS Junior Doctors Dr Ally Jaffee and Dr Iain Broadley (founded whilst medical students) who believed that nutrition and lifestyle medicine education in medical training was not adequate. They believed that they had a responsibility to their generation and future generations of doctors to make a change and that young people are in the ideal position to make that difference.

By working with medical schools, nutrition and dietetic organisations around the UK, Nutritank has evolved into an innovative information hub of food, nutrition and lifestyle medicine.

Originating at Bristol Medical School in 2017, Nutritank has achieved a growing momentum across the UK, from setting up over 15 Nutritank society branches at medical schools, to online and social media engagement and the curation of key projects on a local and national scale.

Nutritank’s university-based societies aim to promote the need for greater nutrition and lifestyle medicine training within medical education.

Nutritank’s team are part of an inter-professional working group tasked by the General Medical Council (GMC) to ensure more nutrition education is integrated within UK undergraduate medical school curricula.

In 2019, Nutritank formally formed a coalition with the organisations NNEdPro and Culinary Medicine UK who share the belief in promoting greater nutrition and lifestyle medicine in medical education.

Nutritank’s online community hub aims to further promote the message of nutrition and lifestyle medicine in medical education to qualified healthcare professionals and students ( medical / nursing / AHP).
