Public Health Summit 26th November 2020

On Thursday 26th November 2020, the Theme hosted its first Public Health Summit. This event brought together 60+ stakeholders from across the West Midlands who have a shared passion for improving the public health of people living in our communities.

The aims of the summit were to

i) Learn more about COVID and Public Health: risks, inequalities, responses and renewals

ii) link ARC WM members and those involved in Public Health in the West Midlands to exchange current issues and priorities and to identify opportunities and synergies for future working

We had wonderful speeches by our guest speakers Harry Rutter who discussed "COVID19 and Public Health: responses and renewals" and Justin Varney who discussed "Current Public Health priorities and approach".

We would like to thank everyone who attended for without you the Summit would not have been the success that it was. To read more about this, please click to see the official ARC West Midlands Blog.
