Professor John Ashton CBE, former president of the Faculty of Public Health talks about his latest book, Practising Public Health: An Eyewitness Account. The book connects the work of nineteenth century public health giants to that of today's twenty-first century pioneers, taking time to reflect over, dissect and highlight the events, decisions, and people involved in its development.

Book highlights include:

  • Reflection on events, people and decisions involved in the development of modern public health
  • Case studies, storytelling, and personal experience giving a unique insight into what public health means in practice
  • Invaluable information for anyone wanting to improve public health through public engagement and community outreach
  • A captivating story of the changes and challenges that Professor John Ashton and other health care officials have faced over the past 40 years

Professor Ashton will also sign copies of his book after the lecture.
