“Fab meeting thank you, really inspiring.”
“It’s the diversity of the participants that makes these meetings so informative – multiple sectors and multiple roles.”
The meetings are for anyone interested in learning from frontline experience of their own, or other sectors, in order to be better equipped to collaborate to promote population health and tackle health inequalities in place.
The Health Creation Digital Forum is a bi-weekly one-hour Zoom meeting during which people from across all those sectors involved in the fight against health inequalities can share, discuss and learn from others’ experience.
Given the coronavirus epidemic, the focus of the Forum is currently responses and learning from COVID-19. The outputs of the meeting are written-up and shared more widely with our membership.
Each Forum is kicked off by a guest contributor(s) from a particular sector who share their insights, experience and learnings. This is followed by a discussion among all attendees.
