Health Workshop - How to Plan a Successful Health Workshop About Vegan and Vegetarian Eating

Many people are interested in the advantages and health benefits of eating a vegan or vegetarian diet. It is easy to get lost on the Internet when researching veganism and vegetarianism; that is why a health workshop can be a great way to teach people the ins and outs of living a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle. If you are a health practitioner, physician, nutritionist or fitness expert there are some tips you can follow to develop, promote and execute a successful health workshop.

Tip 1: Provide the Facts – Credibility is Key at a Health Workshop

On the Internet there is a lot of medical and health oriented information being shared. It is important when planning a health workshop to make sure you establish yourself as an expert and provide facts and data to support the suggestions and recommendations you make to attendees. Share books and other resources that allow people to explore the information on their own.

Tip 2: Establish a Foundation – Start with Health Basics

Some people have been health conscious for years and some people are just learning McDonald’s is not a healthy eating choice. Make sure you understand your audience and if they are new to veganism or vegetarianism that you have clearly explained the basics about healthy eating. This will allow attendees to create a solid foundation during the health workshop that they can build off once they are at home in their own day-to-day lives.

Tip 3: Discuss Dietary Options – Develop a Health Workshop for Different Diets

Every person’s body needs different vitamins, minerals and supplements. Not only are vegan and vegetarian diets different, but there are multiple kinds diets that fall within these categories. Pescatarian, macrobiotic, raw food, gluten free, and many more subcategories can be found around the world, so be sure and speak directly to these niche markets in your health workshop. Health is a uniquely individual topic and what works for one person may not work for another. In a health workshop you have the opportunity to help people learn to evaluate their own health and make educated decisions that improve their quality of life.

Tip 4: Invite Experts – Build Your Network

Nothing boosts your credibility like the support and endorsement of other health professionals. Invite other medical or healthcare professionals to speak at your health workshop and share their opinions of your ideas and recommendations. This of course needs to be someone you know and trust, as well as someone who can add value to your health workshop. Experts can also invite their own contact lists and possibly increase attendance for your health workshop.

Tip 5: Provide Tools and Next Steps - Health Workshop Takeaways

At any health workshop it is important there is a takeaway or a tangible outcome attendees can gain after the fact. Make sure you have provided tools and resources to help your attendees apply what they have learned from you, after all knowledge is nothing if it cannot be applied. After your health workshop it is also important to follow up with your attendees so you can stay in contact with them and invite them to future events.
