    this excellent presentation expertly made the case that it should be considered as a clinical vital sign. Many thanks to Michelle for a lecture into two parts, McCabe’s ideas about God followed by McCabe’s ideas about human beings. In respect of McCabe’s ideas about God, Franco showed how McCabe’s ideas on the ‘Argument from Design’ criticisethat was both what atheistsaccessible and theists say, his standpoint being bothabundant with common sense. We wish her luck in her quest to defend the Christian religion whilst simultaneously supporting the findings of science. Franco drew on the ideas of Richard Dawkins concerninginfluence this area of theologypractice.

I am interested in the role of health screening to identify risk at a younger age, and promote the use of physical activity/exercise for both prevention and management of lifestyle-related conditions, particularly in middle-aged adults and those in sedentary workplaces. I also have a strong interest in methodologies used to determine and monitor obesity, focusing on DXA-derived visceral adipose tissue and measures of central adiposity, which is an area I am keen to advance in relation to cardio-metabolic diseases.'
