Public Health: A Very Short Introduction
Friday 31 March 2017
Oxford University Press is proud to return to the FT Weekend Oxford Literary Festival with another series of soap box talks from the very short introductions series. These free, 15-minute talks feature expert authors from the series and take place twice a day in the Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.
Professor of history and director of the Centre for History in Public Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine Virginia Berridge explores the areas that fall under the remit of public health and explains how the individual histories of different countries have caused great differences in the perception of the role and responsibilities of public health organisations.
