Open Forum Events are pleased to invite you to the Public Health: Prevention in Practice conference. This event is designed to consider the current public health challenges in the UK today and explore the policies and solutions to influence and improve the health of the nation.
Public health is about helping people to stay healthy, protecting them from threats to their health and encouraging them to minimise their risk to conditions and the impact of illness. Over history there have been significant public health initiatives that have sought to and have achieved major success, however, as is the norm, just as one solution has been sought another problem emerges.
Today there are still many challenges to overcome. Smoking remains the leading behavioural cause of premature death and of health inequalities in the UK. Alcohol and drug abuse are also major issues, whilst the obesity ‘epidemic’ seems to show no significant sign of reversal. The extended period of austerity has brought its own problems with poverty, especially food poverty, being of major concern compounding health inequalities throughout the UK. The emerging but urgent matter of Anti-Microbial Resistance (AMR) is now a new contender as a major threat to public health.
Join us at Public Health: Prevention in Practice where all the evidence will be reviewed, digested and discussed. A line up of expert speakers will highlight the main issues facing population health, consequences and possible solutions. The efficacy of the very latest initiatives and an insight as to what more can be done will be debated and opinions shared. The conference offers delegates the optimum platform for knowledge sharing, interactive conversation and peer networking.
