The MRC-HPA Centre for Environment and Health are pleased to invite you to attend a two day International Symposium held in celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Small Area Health Statistics Unit (SAHSU); established following a recommendation of the Black enquiry into the incidence of leukaemia in children and young adults near the Sellafield nuclear plant.
The theme of this international symposium will be forward-looking, discussing new methods and technologies in disease cluster and pattern detection, spatial data analysis, data visualisation, measurement of exposures and health risks, communicating with the public and translating science into health policy.
This meeting will be comprised of plenary sessions, state of the art lectures and poster presentations and will offer individuals the opportunity to work alongside and share knowledge with international experts.
The MRC-HPA Centre for Environment and Health welcome the submission of abstracts for presentation in an evening poster session and drinks reception.
The two day symposium will open with an address by Professor Dame Sally Davies UK Chief Medical Officer & Chief Scientific Adviser to the Department of Health, and close with the second annual Geoffrey Rose Memorial Lecture which will be given by Sir Michael Marmot of University College London.
