Working together for better Public Health
The School will hold its seventh Annual Scientific Meeting across two days from 13th – 14th May 2021.
We will have a number of key note speakers and debates to discuss the longer term consequences of COVID-19 and future learning for public health, with a particular focus on the health inequalities that have been exposed and worsened by the pandemic, the policy implications and how we tackle this as a community.
