The Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH) will host its 5th annual Public Health Open Conference on Tuesday 11 October 2016 in Titanic Belfast.  This is a valuable opportunity for participants to present at this dynamic, informal, annual event.  You are invited to submit proposals in line with the themes listed below:
  • Tackling poverty and inequality across the life cycle – innovative practices and interventions in the context of the delivery of programmes or services relevant to public health.
  • Connecting evidence with public health policy – novel approaches with an emphasis on engagement, participation and multidisciplinary collaboration.
  • How healthy are we? – research, policy and the creative arts as tools for advancing the public’s health.
If your obesity related work fits in with one of these themes, please submit your proposals on the Open Conference website at www.iphopenconference.com no later than Friday, 12 August 2016.
