A guided walk on the history of public health in Liverpool
In the 19th century Liverpool’s public health profile was catastrophic. In some areas, average life expectancy was as low as ten years, mainly due to high infant mortality. This led to new and radical initiatives which were imitated around the world. Join Chris Jones (former senior lecturer, Faculty of Health and Social Care, Edge Hill University) for a walk through the city to illustrate some of the main events in Liverpool’s turbulent public health history.
