Discussion

Given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, The Royal Society of Edinburgh and The Physiological Society have decided to postpone our Parliamentary Reception “Improving Health and Wellbeing: Opportunities for Public Health Scotland”.

While we are disappointed to have to take this decision, the wellbeing of our attendees and speakers is of the utmost importance.

We hope to hold this event in the autumn. Thank you for your interest in this event and we hope you will be able to join us later in the year.

 

Hear from politicians and policymakers about the opportunities to improve public health through the creation of Public Health Scotland.

The Royal Society of Edinburgh and The Physiological Society are jointly holding a Parliamentary Discussion and Reception, hosted by Lewis Macdonald MSP, Convener of the Scottish Parliament Health and Sport Committee.

The launch of Public Health Scotland in April represents a huge shift in Scotland’s approach to public health. This panel discussion at the Scottish Parliament will look to ensure we harness the opportunity of this new body, and also that public health guidance is informed by the latest research.

This discussion will involve a range of public health professionals, including those who are leading Public Health Scotland. Attendees will have the chance to put their questions and comments to the speakers, before the event closes with a drinks reception enabling attendees to network more informally.

Registration is available via Eventbrite.
