The Public Health England Annual Conference 2017 brought together over 1500 participants, representing a wide range of organisations, to learn, network and share knowledge and experience to improve public health outcomes.
This year's conference focused on three key themes across the programme:
• promoting world-class science and evidence
• making the economic case for prevention
• working towards a healthier, fairer society
Each session in the six track programme was linked to one or more of these themes. Speakers included renowned experts and those with experience in putting the evidence into action. PDFs of many of the presentations can be found by going to the Programme page and clicking on the presentation titles.
Steve Brine MP, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Public Health and Primary Care gave the opening keynote address after Duncan Selbie's welcome speech. Richard Curtis, writer, director, producer and co-founder of Red Nose Day, was 'in conversation' at the conference, discussing how he has encouraged a generation to take action on social issues. Sir David Spiegelhalter, Winton Professor of the Public Understanding of Risk at Cambridge University gave a plenary lecture on communicating evidence to inform, and the crucial role of trust, and Professor David Taylor-Robinson, Professor of Public Health and Policy at the University of Liverpool gave a keynote address on health inequalities.
