Public Health Spaces: A mission for health

30th July 2024, 4:00pm - 5:00pm , Online

The Faculty is delighted to announce the third session of our Public Health Spaces initiative, chaired by FPH President Professor Kevin Fenton.

These regular meetings aim to support Faculty members in addressing the future challenges in public health by providing an informal platform for peer-learning.

For this session, we will be joined by former FPH President Professor Sian Griffiths and Professor Kate Ardern, Honorary Professor of Public Health at Salford University and Visiting Professor of Public Health at Chester University to discuss the possible approach the new government might take to improve the health of the nation, with a focus on prevention and getting the new administration off to a fast start in tackling the UK’s chronic health issues.

The Labour manifesto highlighted five key areas to address:

  1. To do much more to prevent illnesses
  2. To create a “child health action plan” to “give them the building blocks for a healthy life”
  3. To create “a roadmap to a smoke-free Britain and a smoke-free generation”
  4. To halve heart attacks and stroke
  5. To halve the gap in healthy life expectancy between the richest and poorest regions

Sian and Kate’s presentations will be followed by reflections from Rachel Johns, Deputy Regional Director of Public Health for North East and Yorkshire, and chair of the FPH Health Improvement Committee.

The biographies of the speakers are available here

This event is open to FPH members only.
