Medicine and Public Health: Divorced for Too Long - Professor Jeremy Farrar

Jeremy Farrar is Director of the Wellcome Trust, a global charitable foundation dedicated to achieving extraordinary improvements in health by supporting the brightest minds. Before joining the Trust, he was Director of the Oxford University Clinical research Unit in Vietnam, where his research interests were in infectious diseases, tropical health and emerging infections. He has contributed to 500 peer- reviewed scientific papers and has served on several World Health Organization advisory committees. Join us for this annual, and always memorable, event of the John Snow Society in the John Snow Lecture Theatre at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine - followed by the annual General Meeting (aGM) at the John Snow Pub. Come early to secure a good seat - although the lecture will be recorded and available on the Society's website if you can't attend.

Private Water Suppliers - Learning about Best Practice in Action

The year 2014 sees the end of the five year period set for statutory compliance with the Private Water Supplies regulations and thus the EU Drinking Water Directive. Local authorities and those responsible for private supplies have major challenges facing them this year and next, including completing risk assessment programmes and getting compliance with the legislation. This conference will bring together many areas of best practice and solutions to common problems, including examples of best practice from local authority environmental health practitioners, and insights into the Chief Drinking Water inspector's 2013 annual report.
