EPUK 2016 National Conference
Thursday 10 November 2016 sees EPUK 2016 National Conference at Aston University, Birmingham.
The theme for the 2016 Conference – ‘Enhancing health through environmental quality – what really needs to be done‘
This year marks 60 years since the Clean Air Acts, legislation that tackled the devastating impacts of the great smogs of the 1950’s. EPUK is marking this significant milestone and the theme for this year’s National Conference recognises that there is more to do, across all environmental compartments, to provide health protection for all in the UK.
Professor Frank Kelly, Environmental Research Group, Kings College, London, will open the conference with an overview of the current state of health protection from air pollution and what we must do now to deliver real improvements. Dr Jill Meara, Health Protection Agency, will introduce the afternoon plenary session by describing the PHE approach to managing health risks from environmental pollution. Graham Jukes, who has recently retired as the Chief Executive of the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, will give a closing presentation on the current and potential future roles of local authorities in delivering better health and wellbeing through environmental management.
There is an opportunity to sign up as a delegate and/or exhibitor at the Early Bird discounted rate – but please do it before 17 May 2016!
