Health Data Research UK (HDR UK) and the broader health data community have been at the forefront of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, providing critical insights to support the UK’s response, understand the spread and impact of the disease on the UK population, and guide the way forwards.

Taking a theme of inclusion - ‘We’re All In This Together’ - we're running a public webinar aiming to highlight the importance of including all groups in society in health data research for COVID-19 and beyond.

We'll be bringing together people from the health data research community to talk about the work that’s been done so far to understand COVID-19 across the UK population, and what needs to happen to make sure nobody is left behind.

Please join us and add your voice to this vital conversation.

We are happy to announce that closed captioning will be available for this webinar, provided by AI-Media.
