The future role of public health: lessons from COVID-19, ‘a year like no other’
Directors of public health and their teams continue to play a crucial role in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. How can we learn from their experiences to strengthen the ongoing public health response to COVID-19?

This webinar will reflect on the work of directors of public health and their teams during the pandemic, drawing on findings from the King's Fund's recentreport, supported by the Health Foundation.

The report highlights the importance of place-based responses – locally and nationally. During the event, we'll explore how directors of public health and their teams can deepen community bonds and the resources needed to do so.

Speakers will also identify opportunities for public health teams to continue to build their profile and, looking beyond the pandemic, fully embed their role within the new public health system.
