Symposium on the Impact of Housing on Health and Well-being – March 2015
Date: 11th March 2015, 9am until 1pm
Venue: Ardudwy Hall, Bangor University
The World Health Organisation estimated in 2011 that between £600 million and £2.4 billion spent every year in the UK treating ill health related directly to poor housing. CHEME is involved in number of projects assessing the impact of housing on individual’s health and well-being and feel this is a topic with wide interest and potential. In order to bring together people with an interest in this topic, CHEME will be hosting a symposium. This free event will consist of presentations on the topic of housing, health and well-being at Ardudwy Hall, Normal Site, Bangor University. We anticipate these presentations taking place between 9am until 1pm, with lunch provided.
Our aim is that this symposium gives attendees a chance to meet others interested in the impact of housing upon health and well-being, and also interested in raising the profile of housing in academic research.
Registration closed on the 20th of February; however, if you are interested in attending the symposium please e-mail Ann Lawton to inquire if spaces are still available.
