As part of the South West Partnership for Environmental and Economic Prosperity (SWEEP) Environmental investment for health outcomes project, we’re hosting a series of webinars to share policy, practice and research stories from across the South West.
Public Health Dorset: Stories from the Healthy Places project
06 December 2019, 1pm
For our first webinar, we’re pleased to welcome Rupert Lloyd from Public Health Dorset. A key part of contemporary public health strategy in many places, including Dorset, is ‘prevention at scale’, developing policies and programmes to improve health and prevent disease through actions at the scale of the wider population rather than only treatment of the individual. In this context, one strand of activity is to focus on ‘healthy places’ – considering the ways in which the places we live shape our health, and how changes to physical and social environments support good health and wellbeing, and contribute to prevention at scale.
Join us for this webinar to learn more about some of the work going on in Dorset, including the Healthy Places project, and take part in a Q&A session after the talk. Rupert will give an overview of how ‘Healthy Places’ forms part of wider efforts to promote prevention at scale across the local health and care system, examples of health and environment collaboration in Dorset and the future direction of work.
Our webinars are open to everyone so please share with anyone who might be interested. If you’d like to sign up for future webinars, or are interested in knowing more about the project, contact Sian de Bell at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our project webpage.
