18:00 Category: LSS - Secular Hall - Public event[18:30] LSS: Rebecca Pritchard: Wicked problems in health science
Wicked problems in health science Rebecca Pritchard A presentation of the impact of lifestyle diseases in the UK, and exploration of how we tackle them. Whilst science has made strides in understanding causes and treatment of diseases like diabetes, heart disease and cancer the incidence of these diseases continues to rise. This discussion will briefly articulate the problem of lifestyle diseases but will focus on strategies to tackle the problem more effectively drawing on 'wicked problem' research from diverse fields. At the heart of the discussion is the question: how do we change behaviour? And do we have the right to do so? Becky is the Public Engagement Manager for the Leicester Diabetes Centre and the National Institute for Health Research Biomedical Research Centre. She holds an MSc in research governance and ethics and has 16 years’ experience in public involvement in health and science. She is also a research PhD student with Edinburgh University because she foolishly thought she wasn’t too busy already. Free entry with tea and biscuits All welcome. Free entry.
