Meeting with Dr Virginia Pearson Joint Executive Director of Public Health

I met with Dr Pearson to discuss her thoughts on the most important public health issues facing the County. We discussed the importance of early years development to long term health, diet and nutrition and in particular the devastating impact of alcohol. The knock on effects of binge drinking and dependent drinking are felt throughout society and have the greatest impact on those who are already the most disadvantaged.

We have agreed to work together where possible to look at ways of tackling problem drinking in Devon
