The Faculty Of Public Health Expo 2017

Stafford FM will be covering the Annual Faculty Of Public Health Expo 2017 live on our Facebook page


The Expo is a great showcase of a range of health and living issues and charities that are here to support delicate issues.

It is free to attend if you fancy joining us in Telford.


The FPH Said

“As a public health community, we have an ever greater responsibility to implement the systems, policies and services that are as cost-effective and efficient as possible. Our 2017 conference in Telford is the opportunity to share the latest evidence, explore new ideas and ensure that current practice is the most effective we can deliver.

We want to bring together ideas, innovative practice and learning from all four UK nations and from across the full range of public health activities, from protecting against infection and environmental hazards to improving care delivery, from new screening programmes to improving health in the populations we serve. Evidence supports all parts of public health – come and share it in Telford.

Delegates will be grappling with such thorny issues as:
  • How can public health save the planet?
  • The UK’s humanitarian role post-Brexit
  • What will the public health workforce look like in 10 years’ time?”
