City Health 2012

Guildhall, London - 22nd and 23rd October 

Where: City of London’s historic Guildhall

What: This international event examines current policy and practice in relation to public health in cities.  It has a special focus on health behaviours - alcohol, sex, drugs, smoking, nightlife, entertainment venues, mental health, violence, tourism, migration, and planning for large scale events, along with consideration of the future challenges for creating healthy cities and a healthy public.

Focus: Adopting a ‘whole systems’ approach, reflecting the integration of health and social care and with emphasis on the science and evidence supporting policy, treatment and the delivery of services, the conference will showcase examples of effective policy and good practice in addressing the consequences of health behaviours. Of particular importance will be examples of multi-agency, multi-disciplinary working, including professionals from other sectors, including law enforcement.

Who for: city officials, policy makers, industry, public health staff, local authority staff, students, researchers, NGO staff, commerce, law enforcement, health planners, urban planners, managers, practitioners and users of health services.
