Richard & Hinda Rosenthal Symposium: Behaviour change to improve health for all - London

External Event - 17th Jan 2019

Symposium InformationOn 17 January 2019, the U.S. National Academy of Medicine and the UK Academy of Medical Sciences and will co-host the 2019 Richard & Hinda Rosenthal Symposium, titled ‘Behaviour change to improve health for all.’  

The event will take place at the Wellcome Collection in London from 09.00 until 17.00, and will be followed by a networking reception until 20.00. The meeting is free to attend but booking is essential - please register by completing the form to the right hand side of this page. We would be grateful if you could indicate if you will also stay for the evening networking reception. 

During three sessions, the Symposium will focus on how cutting edge science in neurobiology and expanding knowledge about the factors influencing decision making involving the overconsumption of food and alcohol, obesity, and tobacco and drug use can lead to more effective interventions and policies to improve health and health equity across diverse populations. Specifically, through keynote presentations and panel sessions, the Symposium will explore:

  • The neurobiology of behaviour and decision making, and how developing knowledge could translate into more effective interventions.
  • Lessons learned from examples of successful interventions that have targeted the physical, social, and/or behavioural environments to alter behavioural patterns and reduce health inequities.
  • The potential roles for emerging technologies and complex system approaches to encourage healthy decision-making and improve the health of populations.

A further aim of the symposium is to foster and strengthen scientific partnerships between the UK and US, enabled by the meeting and a networking reception.
