As well as the talks from our invited speakers, there will be a series of interactive parallel sessions that will cover research into policy for urban planning and transport, urban health advocacy, healthy aging in cities, healthy life expectancy, public health teaching and training, mental health, environmental health and alcohol in the city.
We are also pleased to report that the International Society of Urban Health will sponsor the conference. The conference will be the headline Urban Health conference in 2012.
If you are a policy maker attending the conference, there is a parallel session designed just for you. It is entitled "Workshop F - From Indicators to Implementation" and it will demonstrate three products from the EURO-URHIS 2 project: web-based e-tools summarising UHI data for participating urban areas in the project, urban area health profiling and Health Impact Assessment (HIA) screening tools.
The utility of the UHI information will be demonstrated for HIA using case studies taken from the project and would be very pleased if you could attend to see HIA for health related policy making in action and give us your feedback on the approach we are taking.
