Event description

Description

Nick is a medical doctor, having worked in a number of settings in Western Australia, and has trained in population health (UWA) and public policy (University College London). He is the Executive Director of the Lancet Countdown: Tracking Progress on Health and Climate Change, an independent and multi-disciplinary research collaboration between academic centres around the world. It is based at University College London’s Institute for Global Health, and is a continuation of the 2015 Lancet Commission on Health and Climate Change. The Countdown tracks and drives progress towards a world which is responding to climate change in a way that protects and promotes public health. He works to engage the health profession on the links between climate change and public health, having founded both the Global Climate and Health Alliance and the UK Health Alliance on Climate Change.

Free wine, soft drinks and vegan food will be provided - with a great opportunity for networking after the talk.

Accessibility Access: There are disabled toilets in the Winstanley lecture theatre, and is accessible via lift, with spaces in the lecture theatre for wheelchairs. Induction loops are also installed in the theatre.
