Speaker: Professor Tim Lang
If you’re interested in food policy or public health, Tim Lang, who’s a Professor of Food Policy at City University’s Centre for Food Policy, has been invited to give the Faculty of Public Health’s annual DARE lecture which will take place on 7th June at 12.30pm in the Oliver Thompson Lecture Theatre. His lecture will be followed by lunch and networking, so it’s also an invaluable opportunity to hear from one of City’s experts and then network with public health professionals.
Prof Lang will be giving the lecture on, ‘A post-Brexit Food Plan: filling the space vacated by HM Government’, which he’ll use as an opportunity to outline the key issues facing the UK’s food system as the UK prepares to leave the EU. You can sign up for your free ticket here.
The annual lecture is run by FPH, a membership organisation for nearly 4,000 public health professionals across the UK and around the world, as well as a registered charity that campaigns to improve the health and wellbeing of local communities and national populations. If you’re not already a member of FPH, you can sign up for a discounted rate of just £20 for your first year using the code CITY20. Membership benefits including exclusive access to networking events, learning opportunities such as conferences, courses and workshops, and the chance to join special interest groups or support the campaigning work FPH’s policy & communications team are doing.

What is the DARE lecture and how did it come about?
In 1983 a group of consultants and community physicians, protesting against the divisive pay rise awarded to doctors in the NHS (whilst other health staff had had to battle for a pay award half of that given to doctors) established the ‘Doctors’ Awards Redistribution Enterprise’ (DARE). The charity was initially funded from four year covenants made by these doctors, of the difference between the pay rise they received and that which they would have had, if they had been treated the same as other NHS staff. The money was used to fund new developments in priority services which wouldn’t have happened without this money. The DARE lecture is the legacy from this work and aims to challenge and stimulate debate on developments within the NHS and public health.
