Public Health Dorset: Stories from the Healthy Places project – a webinar

The team from the SWEEP Environmental Investment for Health Outcomes project are hosting a series of webinars to share policy, practice and research stories from across the South West.

Public Health Dorset: Stories from the Healthy Places project is the first in the series. The live stream took place on Friday 6 December 2019.

For this opening webinar, the team welcomed Rupert Lloyd from Public Health Dorset who shared his insight into some of the work going on in Dorset, including the Healthy Places project, and gave a Q&A session after the talk. Rupert gave an overview of how ‘Healthy Places’ forms part of wider efforts to promote prevention at scale across the local health and care system, examples of health and environment collaboration in Dorset and the future direction of work in Dorset.

A recording of the webinar is available on YouTube, and below if you would like to listen in.

The next in the series is titled Environmental investment for health outcomes: What does the evidence say? with the live stream taking place on Friday, January 31st 2020 at 1.00pm (UK time).

Becca Lovell, from the European Centre for European Centre for Environment and Human Health and World Health Organisation Collaborating Centre on Natural Environments and Health at the University of Exeter Medical School and one of the project team, will be presenting. Becca will give an overview of the evidence on the links between the natural environment and human health, she will then go on to talk about the implications for different sectors.

Join in to learn more about some of the key research on the benefits of the natural environment for human health and how this is informing investment in interventions such as green prescribing and urban greenspace provision. The webinar will be followed by a Q&A session.
