Public Lecture Series 2020 - Doctor's Orders

Public lecture series banner 2020

Doctor’s Orders – How can bold new research meet the challenges of healthcare services?

This lecture asks how new thinking on the economics of behaviour change can lead us toward a healthier life and toward a healthier NHS. While social inequality remains a barrier in national health, how can we ensure the state supports the wellbeing of everyone? And can new research simulate innovation to reveal what the future holds for our healthcare services?

  • Dr Nana Anokye – The Economics of Behaviour Change and Public Health Interventions
  • Dr Sara De Benedictis – The Cultural Politics of ‘Period Poverty’
  • Dr David Bell – Simulating Healthcare Futures in a Web of Public and Private Data

Join us from 18:00 for a 18:30 start, and enjoy our complimentary drinks reception.

A free public event open to anyone interested in discussions regarding the future of healthcare services. Everyone is welcome!

Brunel Public Lecture Series 2020 – Acting Local, Thinking Global
From the climate crisis to global healthcare challenges, our planet is facing unprecedented change that relies on us all working together. The global reach of research means that universities can be at the very heart of that ambition, bringing about the discoveries, innovations and social initiatives that can truly make a difference.

The 2020 Brunel Public Lecture Series shines a light on research that has a global impact in three crucial areas – healthcare, communities and conservation – and asks how we can all join together to find local solutions to global problems.
