Welcome to Glenavon Doctors Surgery

As a doctor and father of a school-aged daughter, I was realized that children from economically-disadvantaged schools were reading books that were three years behind their peers in wealthier areas. If you left primary school with such a disadvantage, how could you compete in the real world?

That led me to begin a weekly programme in schools, teaching creative writing. Giving up a day of medical work weekly may have surprised others, including my family, but I felt richer for it. For over a decade, I have taught creativity and built libraries in low-decile schools. I even ended up an adviser on the National Commission of UNESCO.

A decade later, while researching for The Genetics of Health book, I realised that poor nutrition and bad diets worsen learning outcomes and moods.
