Packed Lunch: Measuring What Matters


Drop in

This event will be speech to text transcribed.

Wednesday 26 July 2017


Feed your curiosity at our daytime discussions. Drop in to hear local scientists in conversation about their latest experiments, life in the lab and why science matters to everyone, all in the space of your lunch hour. Bring your sarnies with you to eat while you listen.

How can we know about people’s mental health? How do we tell how well children are developing? To answer the questions that matter most in public health, statistical epidemiologist Vicky Simms works out what to measure and how to measure it.


Vicky Simms, assistant professor in epidemiology, London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine
