Society for Social Medicine - Annual Scientific Meeting, 5th-7th September 2018

As a society that reflects many of our own interests, both in health topics and research methods, we would like to draw your attention to this year's Annual Scientific Meeting of the Society for Social Medicine.

The Society for Social Medicine Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) (the UK’s leading population health conference) will be taking place in Glasgow from 5th-7th September 2018. It is being organised by the University of Glasgow and the wider public health community in Glasgow. The 62nd ASM will be held at the Technology and Innovation Centre, George Street.

This is a three-day academic and professional conference with a mix of high quality, peer reviewed oral presentations, posters and workshops and ample opportunity for networking. Two keynote lectures will be delivered by Professor Kate Hunt (the Cochrane Lecture) and Professor Mel Bartley (the Pemberton Lecture). Oral presentations run in parallel and are organised by topics, including Health Inequalities, Health Services Research, Lifecourse, Neighbourhoods & Communities, Mental Health & Wellbeing. 

Social medicine is the study of health in its widest sense. It covers a range of subjects including epidemiology, the medical and health needs of society, health services, and the prevention of disease. This conference spans all research that addresses important issues in population health sciences and includes qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods approaches. Everyone interested in population health sciences can come together to share information and network in a rigorous yet friendly atmosphere.
