On 1 May 2024, Public Health Scotland, the Faculty of Public Health, and the Scottish Directors of Public Health Group will join together to host a major public health Conference in Glasgow.
Taking place at the Technology and Innovation Centre, University of Strathclyde, this new collaboration between Scotland’s public health organisations will bring together public health professionals, academics, policymakers, and colleagues from across the third sector.

The event will provide an opportunity for the entire public health community in Scotland to come together, face-to-face, to share knowledge and drive forward work to protect and improve health for the people of Scotland.

This year’s theme is ‘Inspiring Change’, and delegates will have the opportunity to engage with:

  • Plenary sessions from leaders working at the forefront of current challenges in public health
  • Parallel and poster sessions showcasing work from across Scotland and beyond
  • Colleagues from across the many different sectors involved in developing and delivering public health.

Announcing the Conference, Paul Johnston, Chief Executive of Public Health Scotland said:

“Public Health Scotland is grateful to be able to work closely with our partners at the Faculty of Public Health and the Scottish Directors of Public Health to deliver this new Conference that will embolden Scotland’s vision for public health.

“The event will enable all who are working to address Scotland’s public health challenges to come together in the spirit of collaboration and innovation and will provide a real opportunity to align our collective commitment and determination to improving health outcomes across our country.”
