PHPI online Keynote Talk - 12th November 5-7pm
The Public Health/Private Illness Keynote Q+A is now taking place online at 5pm on Thursday 12th November 2020.
Dr Chisomo Kalinga was unable to be with us in September but is now able to give her talk entitled '"No man is an island": Understanding Indigenous and African perspectives of personal wellbeing within Global Health Studies'.
Chisomo will pre-record her talk which will be posted in advance on our dedicated YouTube playlist for you to watch at your leisure in the week or so beforehand. There will then be a live Q+A on 12th Nov in which Chisomo discusses her work with Dr Laura Kelly (University of Strathclyde). The session will last for around an hour and you can submit questions in advance via Twitter or ask them on the day.
This will followed by our own online version of the bit at the end where there's free wine and orange juice, which will be modelled on our very successful coffee morning held during the conference. It's a bit of fun where we all get put into break-out rooms on Zoom for 5 mins or so and get to meet other attendees. It has been touted behind the scenes as a 'wine-merry-go-round' but all kinds of drinks are welcome
Thurs 3rd and Fri 4th Sep 2020, Glasgow (but online so anywhere really)
Public Health, Private Illness was a two-day interdisciplinary medical humanities conference aimed at early career researchers but open to anyone - patients, practitioners, policy-makers or more established academics were all welcome. It took place online on Thurs 3rd and Fri 4th September, 2020.
The conference was free to attend and we welcomed attendees from all over the world.
Our keynote speaker is Dr Chisomo Kalinga. Chisomo couldn't make it on the day but will give her paper entitled '"No man is an island": Understanding Indigenous and African perspectives of personal wellbeing within Global Health Studies' online in November as a continuation of the conference. The talk will be pre-recorded and a Q+A session with Dr Laura Kelly (Strathclyde) will take place at 5pm on Thursday 12th November via Zoom.
