Dr Michael Greger Viva!





It is with great regret that Viva! has decided that, as a result of the evolving Covid-19 situation, it is no longer possible for us to hold Dr Michael Greger's talk on The Groundbreaking Science of Healthy Permanent Weight Loss.

We have been closely following UK Government & Public Health England guidelines over the past weeks however as yet the government do not see the need to close down major events. Viva! however felt the safety and wellbeing of the general public and staff is of paramount importance to us, and the protection and prevention of harm to all involved should take precedence.

It is now with much sadness that we have taken the decision to postpone the event.

We are currently working with Dr Greger to look at options to reschedule to a later date. We will be in touch to update you on the situation, and we will be offering a full refund to all ticketholders.

We are sincerely sorry that we have had to make this incredibly difficult decision and thank you for bearing with us in these uncertain times.

We will be announcing the rescheduled dates in the near future. In the meantime, Dr Greger's new book How Not To Diet can be found here:
