Neuro Supports Men's Health

THE Neurosupport Centre in Liverpool is opening it's doors to the men of Merseyside on 20 Wednesday  June 2007 - hosting a Men's Health Event. 16 organisations involved in health and fitness will have stalls and there'll be all sorts of information on every aspect of Men's Health.

The Neurosupport Centre is in the heart of Liverpool and exists to provide information and support to people with neurological conditions, their families and carers. Marketing Officer Danny Start says:- "Our wonderful and fully accessible building has hosted many exhibitions, conferences and events over the years-and we hope Men's Health Day will become a regular fixture in our events calendar."

Neurosupport has organised the day with the help of Liverpool Health promotion service. The day will commence at 9.45 am-opened by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool. The day will be chocker block full of information and will include stalls from the North West Stroke Association, Merseyside Diabetes Support Group, the Health Inclusion for Men project and 'Fag Ends' - a give up smoking presentation by the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Centre-to name but a few. Visitors will be able to get a blood pressure check, carbon monoxide check and learn about healthy and eating and getting some exercise. And there will be a yoga presentation and examples of how reiki and relaxation techniques can help a man's health.

The day takes place in Men's Health Week-aimed at raising awareness of Men's Health and encouraging more men to present to doctor with their health problems. Men are less likely to visit the doctor when they have symptoms, lumps and bumps, aches and pains and this reluctance can lead to more serious illnesses not being identified early enough. Danny says:- "Hopefully the day will give men all the information they need to make decisions on their health and make 2007 the year they start to eat healthily and take more regular exercise."

Men's Health Day takes place at the Neurosupport Centre, Norton Street Liverpool from 10am to 4pm and, if the success of previous Neurosupport events is anything to go by, should be a busy day. Danny says:- "If the man in your life needs that extra push-tell him to come along!"

Thousands register for radio poll

PEOPLE say they listen to the radio more often than they did 2 years ago - that’s according to the early findings of the biggest ever poll on the future of the industry.

The Big Listen survey is being carried out by YouGov on behalf of RadioCentre, the body which represents UK Commercial Radio.

The Big Listen online poll has got off to a flying start with thousands of people voting in the 1st few days of the week-long survey.

Special programming all week is encouraging listeners to take part at and on Sunday 17 listeners will have the chance to tune in and add their voice to a live debate on 60 Commercial Radio stations across the country.  The Big Listen rates radio above all other major media for trustworthiness. But the industry is undergoing rapid change and the regulator Ofcom is currently conducting a consultation into the future of radio.

Produced by LBC, the 2 hour show on Sunday night will be hosted by Toby Anstis and will look at the development of Commercial Radio over the last 33 years and analyse how it will develop in the digital world of the future.

There will be debate with guests including Tony Blackburn, Richard Park, Scott Mills, Simon Bates and Nick Ferrari. The Big Debate will air from 10pm to midnight and James Whale will host a similar show at the same time on Talk Sport and Talk 107 (in Edinburgh).

“We’ve had a fantastic response so far in our nationwide poll of listeners, which goes to show how important radio is in our society.

This is a critical time for the future of radio and it’s great to see so many people getting involved in the debate.

The 1st stage survey gives a good indication of how much people value radio - we look forward to seeing the results of the online poll, which will tell us just how the listeners feel about the changes that are happening in the industry today.”  said Andrew Harrison, RadioCentre chief executive.
