Join us at our virtual Annual Conference on the 4th and 5th of November:
#WeArePublicHealth: Creating Health and Wellbeing for All
Our 2020 Annual Conference will take place online over 2 days with 4 sessions to allow flexible access and options for joining us. With home working still the default position in Scotland, we wanted to bring the best of our event to you in a bitesize format.
So far, the approach to tackling Scotland’s health inequalities and other public health challenges has not delivered the significant changes we need. With the newly created Public Health Scotland and a national set of public health priorities, is Scotland now set to re-focus its approach on prevention, protection and improvement of the nation’s health? What does ‘public health’ mean for the third sector and what is our role and contribution? How do we empower people and communities to both benefit from and contribute to public health? What needs to happen to make public health partnership working with third sector organisations the norm?
Our annual conference is one of the leading health events in Scotland and this year will make another important contribution to public health reform.The conference is an opportunity to bring together public health’s stakeholders from across the third and community sectors, NHS, national and local government, other public bodies, and academia. We will provide an arena for people and organisations to discuss what we mean when we say #WeArePublicHealth. We will take a deep dive into the six national public health priorities, with these being the theme of the conference poster exhibition and blogs.
- James Jopling, Head of British Heart Foundation Scotland
