Who this event is for
JHB Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus
Public health is a shared challenge. There is an important role for business, working in partnership with government and consumers, to ensure that our children enjoy a healthier environment than we have had.
The business community, through the brands we know and love, have arguably the greatest influence in empowering and supporting people to make informed decisions about leading healthier lives.
Henry will be exploring how we encourage businesses to take action voluntarily, examining business as a force for good in improving public health.
