Responsibility for Public Health is moving from the NHS to local authorities providing a new opportunity to make the case for transport interventions on the basis of improving health. Come to our first masterclass to find out how to make the most of this opportunity from Lucy Saunders, a specialist in Public Health and transport.
Lucy Saunders is a Fellow of the Faculty of Public Health, she has worked in the public health system in London for 10 years in Primary Care Trusts, Health Protection Agency, Department of Health, World Health Organisation, PwC and London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She now works for the Greater London Authority integrating public health into transport and planning across London.
The masterclass will cover:
- What Public Health is, who is responsible for it, what they do and how to engage with them
- What is changing and why this is a good time to make the link between health and transport
- Challenges, barriers and how to overcome them
- All the key resources for making the health case for increasing walking and cycling in London
We hope you can join us for the masterclass which will be held at City Hall on Wednesday 21st November from 6.30 – 8pm. Please let us know if you’d like to attend.
