Prof Sinead Brophy, Director at The National Centre for Population Health & Wellbeing Research and Conference Chair, said:
“A key aim of this Conference is to explore common global health challenges, strengthen global communication and collaboration to tackle health and wellbeing challenges, reduce inequalities, and build stronger and more resilient populations.
The Conference offers excellent opportunities to learn from the latest research and practice to network with leading academics and researchers and to work with others on developing grants and papers.”
