PAIS academic co-organises event on Brexit, trade and health

Brexit Health eventTogether with Dr Nicolette Butler from the University of Manchester and Zoltán Massay-Kosubek from the European Public Health Alliance (whose staff also provided excellent support), Dr Gabriel Siles-Brügge recently co-organised an event on Brexit, trade and health, also moderating one of its sessions 'Post-Brexit Trade and Investment Policy'. The event was funded through an ESRC IAA from the University of Manchester.

The purpose of the event was to refocus the discussion of Brexit, often couched very narrow legal and economic terms, around the impact that a new economic arrangement will have on public health.

The event featured leading academics and prominent policy practitioners, including the Head of the NHS Confederation Office in Brussels (Elisabetta Zanon) and Irish MEP Marian Harkin (ALDE).

For more information about the event and speakers, see the event webpage ( or look up the Twitter hashtag #BrexitHealth.

Together with Dr Butler, Dr Siles-Brügge is a Scientific Advisor to EPHA on trade and investment issues.
