Monday 4th July, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Event Navigation


Medact and Queen Mary University London (QMUL) are holding an event called ‘Tracking Health Through Peace‘ on July 4.

The panel discussion and Q&A will be held at the Morris Lecture Theatre in the Robin Brooke Centre, from 6-8pm. We are offering a limited number of free tickets to people who email us at [email protected] ! The discussion will be based around the latest report from the Global Peace Index, which is the world’s pre-eminent think tank measuring peace. There is a growing global inequality in peace, and low peace levels have a profound impact on health systems and health indicators. Academics and campaigners working on peace and health will be tying in this latest research on peace levels with national health indicators. They will also discuss the development and importance of the movement for peace in the health community.

Speakers:

  • Helen Tanner, Global Peace Index Ambassador

  • Dr Frank Boulton, Medact trustee and medical academic

  • Dr Helen Leveret, Medact Refugee Solidarity Group

  • Ben Clavey, Medact Arms Control Group

Chaired by Dr Jonathan Kennedy from Queen Mary University London (QMUL)
