External: Public Health England Annual Conference 2017
11 September 2017 - 13 September 2017
The Public Health England Annual Conference 2017 will take place at Warwick University on 12 and 13 September. We look forward to welcoming over 1400 participants, representing a wide range of organisations, to learn, network and share knowledge and experience to improve public health outcomes.
This year’s conference is focusing on three key themes across the programme:
• promoting world-class science and evidence
• making the economic case for prevention
• working towards a healthier, fairer society
Each session in the six track programme is linked to one or more of these themes. Speakers include renowned experts and those with experience in putting the evidence into action. The full detailed programmes for sessions are now available.
Steve Brine MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Public Health and Primary Care will give a keynote address. Richard Curtis, writer, director, producer and co-founder of Red Nose Day, will be ‘in conversation’ at the conference, discussing how he has encouraged a generation to take action on social issues. Sir David Spiegelhalter, Winton Professor of the Public Understanding of Risk at Cambridge University will give a plenary lecture on communicating evidence to inform, and the crucial role of trust, and Professor David Taylor-Robinson, Professor of Public Health and Policy at the University of Liverpool will give a keynote address on health inequalities.
