Packed Lunch: Child Health

Feed your curiosity at our daytime discussions. Drop in to hear local scientists in conversation about their latest experiments, life in the lab and why science matters to everyone, all in the space of your lunch hour. Bring your sarnies with you to eat while you listen.
Simon Cousens is the lead investigator on a research project in Burkina Faso, West Africa, that aims to investigate how mass media campaigns could improve the health of children under five. Can public health messages really make a difference? Join Simon to hear how the work is going and for a broader discussion about applying statistics to neonatal and child health in low-income settings.
Speaker: Simon Cousens, professor of epidemiology and medical statistics, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.
