Public Health for a New Era

Join an all-day masterclass on Tuesday 28th November to learn more about the impact of genomics on public health practice  

As genomics continues to move from specialist clinics into mainstream patient care, it should be considered in every facet of public health: infectious disease; chronic disease; occupational health; environmental health; and maternal and child health. It is vital, therefore, that public health practitioners across the health service know how best to harness the power of genomics for patient benefit in their work. 

Hear from key figures

On 28th November HEE's public health workforce team in conjunction with the Genomics Education Programme is hosting a free workshop offering an opportunity to those who contribute to the public’s health to learn more about the impact of genomics and hear from key figures in the field.

Aim of the masterclass

The day will aim to: 

  • provide an overview of the ways in which genomics is changing public health
  • present real life examples of the use of genomics by public health professionals 
  • improve understanding of the different ways in which genomic information can influence patient care and behaviours
  • provide an opportunity for attendees to explore their own role in delivering genomic medicine within public health
