    Does Dr Darren Warburton have a blog or on going service I can go to for continued information on his work.

    As a GP referral Pilates teacher of the older active person, most of whom have chronic morbidities, which affect their lives, I am very interested in finding out more about the work of chronic disease prevention Unit.
