The #FACONF 2021 Conference Hub
Welcome to the #FACONF Conference Hub! Here you will find a recording of the event, as well as speaker presentations which are available to view and download below.
On Thursday 28th January, we held our annual conference ‘COVID-19, Inequalities and Healthy Weight: How can the North level up?’ to explore how populations across the region have been affected by COVID-19, and how the pandemic is widening the gap between the North and South in terms of health inequalities. Check out the Conference Handbook here.
Food Active also launched an ambitious ‘8-Point Policy Call’ to focus efforts and resource in reducing health inequalities across the North, with a specific focus on healthy weight. Co-developed by the Food Active Network of local authorities, the 8-point policy call with determine advocacy work at both a regional and national level. Please scroll down to the bottom of this page to find out more about this piece of work, and how you can get involved.
The conference was extremely popular with over 300 registrations, representing public health professionals, policy leads, elected members, the third sector, academics, and wider stakeholders from the North of England (and beyond).
By scrolling down this page, you can either remind yourself of any key presentations and for those of you who were not able to attend, get fully up to speed with everything that was covered on the day by viewing the recording, downloading speaker presentations. We will also be publishing an event report shortly.
