Jointly hosted by BU and the NHS
Public health is at a crossroads … moving back into local authorities where it began with the appointment of the first medical officers for health. This move presents opportunities to improve health and wellbeing by taking a more integrated approach. The purpose of this one day conference was to discuss these opportunities and identify action that can be taken to improve health and wellbeing using the best available evidence. The event was very successful and well attended and included local public health practitioners, local councillors and BU staff.
