Cambridge Public Health Conference – 18 May 2021

We are pleased to announce the first Annual Showcase of the newly formed Cambridge Public Health Interdisciplinary Centre and would be grateful if you could alert your networks.

This event is aimed at introducing new research and innovations focusing on supporting young people’s mental health, with an impressive programme of speakers and contributors who seek to influence the nation’s approach to promoting mental health for children and adolescents.

Our Keynote Speaker is the well-known Professor John Wright, Director of Bradford Institute for Health Research.  He is currently most famous for his COVID reports for the BBC. He is also renown for setting up a pioneering study from pregnancy in Bradford (Born in Bradford) that has tracked young lives, with a major emphasis on diversity and inequalities.

Organisation of this event is headed by Professor Gordon Harold, who leads the Public Mental Health research pillar.  Through his leadership the event has also attracted the attention of UK Government through the work of the Department for Work and Pensions, with a major area of work on supporting parents relationships with the objective of promoting young people’s mental health and future outcomes (education and mental health).

We are keen for this event to attract funders and external stakeholders (local, regional, national and international) as well as providing the first showcase event to bring together our own within the Cambridge community.  We would be grateful if you could cascade the invitation to your faculties, institutes and departments to alert those who might be interested in attending, and also joining Cambridge Public Health.
