Perspective speaker tour with Dr Alex Mold

Walking tour

Drop in

Thursday 9 November 2017


Join Dr Alex Mold for a tour of 'Can Graphic Design Save Your Life?'

Alex Mold is the principal investigator on the Placing the Public in Public Health project at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM). She is working on the strand of the project that looks at the changing conception of the public within health education and health promotion, including the analysis of public health posters, films and other educational tools, as well as considering how the public were spoken to by public health in particular situations. Alex is an associate professor in history at the LSHTM, and she is director of the Centre for History in Public Health.

In her tour, Alex will be exploring some of the ways in which public health messages have been communicated in the past and present. From the spread of cholera in the 19th century, to modern campaigns to increase organ donation, design is central to both the medium and the message.

There is no need to book (though spaces are limited). Just meet your guide beside the Information Point on level 0.
