Your Health, Your Evidence 2017

EBM+ School Volunteering Programme Conference

Wednesday 3rd May

Gustave Tuck Lecture Theatre, Wilkins Building, UCL

#YHYE2017 

EBM+ are holding a conference to mark the end of our first school volunteering programme. EBM+ is a consortium of philosophers, sociologists and policy experts taking part in a three-year, AHRC-funded research project, 'Evaluating Evidence in Medicine'. This conference provides a fantastic opportunity to find out more about EBM+ and the work we do to engage school students with Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) - from its strengths to its flaws and, most importantly, how it can be improved. We expect over 100 attendees including EBM+ consortium members, various academics, UCL students including our enthusiastic volunteers and the Key Stage 5 school students who participated in the programme.

We are delighted to announce that Professor David Healy (University of Cardiff) and Professor Mike Kelly (University of Cambridge) will deliver the keynote talks at the 2017 conference.

There will be a number of short presentations from each group of Key Stage 5 students who participated in the programme. 

There will also a panel consisting of several volunteers who ran the school workshops discussing the topic of volunteering at university.
