The CHAD Health and Social Inequalities Symposium and Guest Lecture will take place on Thursday 9th November 2017.
We are delighted to invite you to take part in two CHAD events on the 9th November 2017, and you are welcome to attend either or both by choosing one of the booking options below.
The first event is the CHAD Health and Social Inequalities Symposium, which will be followed by our second event, a guest lecture, entitled ‘Health is Wealth’ presented by Duncan Selbie, CEO of Public Health England.
1. The Health and Social Inequalities Symposium will take place 12.30pm – 5pm (LRV, Staffordshire University, Stoke-on-Trent)
Dr Richard Harling, Director of Health and Social Care for Staffordshire County Council, will open the event. Richard has statutory responsibilities for public health and adult social services in the County and a keen interest in research.
The symposium aims to showcase translational research from a range of academic disciplines across the University and beyond, that contributes to the science and practice of reducing health and social inequalities and improving health and wellbeing. The presentations will be within the CHAD theme areas of health inclusion, healthy start, healthy living and healthy communities and place.
It will consist of both oral and poster presentations, and provide opportunities to discuss the excellent research happening in our region.
2. Duncan Selbie guest lecture ‘Health is Wealth’ will follow the symposium from 6pm – 8pm (Science Centre, Staffordshire University, Stoke-on-Trent)
Our guest speaker, Duncan Selbie has been the Chief Executive of Public Health England since its formation in 2013. We look forward to welcoming Duncan to Staffordshire and his lecture will provide a unique insight into public health thinking at the highest level nationally. Until 2012, Duncan Selbie was Chief Executive of Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals, the regional teaching hospital for the south east of England. From 2003 to 2007, he was Director General of Programmes and Performance for the NHS and the first Director General of NHS Commissioning. (source: GOV.UK).
