PUBLIC HEALTH: Promoting Health and Challenges Ahead

PUBLICHEALTH: Promoting Health and Challenges Ahead
The Barbican, London, 30th September 2010

This Event is CPD Certified

The challenge to improve and maintain the health and wellbeing of the population is a difficult undertaking. The phrase ?prevention is better than cure? is often quoted; however, with the UK on the verge of an obesity epidemic, over 100,000 people dying each year from smoking related illnesses, and deaths from illegal drug use far too frequent, clearly we are not sufficiently successful in the area of ?prevention?.

Public Health: Promoting Health and the Challenges Ahead will explore the way forward to safeguarding a healthier nation and will debate policies that can make a real impact. Professionals from the public health and health promotion sectors can hear from leading experts on the current and emerging challenges and how to overcome them. Read More
