The shape of the public's health

Following on from our AGM we will be hosting a free two-part event which will include a debate around whether obesity 'Should be recognised as a disease?' at 4:30pm followed by a sculpture exhibition at 6:00pm. We would be delighted if you could join us, drinks and refreshments will be provided.

Part I: Should obesity be recognised as a disease?

By 2020 around 1 in 3 people in the UK could be obese. Obesity has been described as the new smoking in terms of the impact on our health. Should people living with obesity be labelled as having a disease? Join us for what will be a lively debate on the issue – we will have a panel of speakers representing both sides of the argument who will debate for and against recognising obesity as a disease.

Part II: Sculpture exhibiton

Each year we unveil a piece of artwork which is inspired by issues impacting the public’s health. This year we are delighted to be working with the Royal Society of Sculptors on a national competition which uses the medium of sculpture to reflect the main public health challenges of the day. Join us for the unveiling of the finalists.

All members and fellows of the Royal Society of Sculptors are invited to submit their existing work for a chance to be shortlisted as one of three prize winners. The three finalists which will be exhibited at the RSPH Shape of the Public’s Health event.

Hygeia Awards 2019

For a number of years, RSPH has formally recognised learners who achieved the highest score that year for their qualification. In 2018, these awards were expanded to include centres, tutors and learners taking qualifications that are not assessed by an examination.

Winning a Hygeia Award is recognition of outstanding achievement. Past winners have used their award to increase their employment prospects, while recognition from peers in the workplace has also proved invaluable.

We invite our Centres and students to attend the Awards and celebrate with us. Registration will open at 3:00pm and the Awards will run from 3:30 - 4:30pm.
