‘Covid. The Changing Landscape.Changing Lives’ event coincides with the anniversary of the first Covid lockdown in the U.K. and explores how the pandemic has impacted health and life sciences research, for better or worse. The event will take place in the John Henry Brookes main lecture theatre on the Headington Campus. The event will commence at 18:00 with our panel of experts (covering disciplines such as nursing, psychology, early childhood development and primary care). They will discuss the implications of this for our everyday lives as we continue to live with Covid. Hear from Prof Trish Greenhalgh (the University of Oxford), Prof Mary Malone (Kings College London), Prof Vince Connelly (Oxford Brookes University) and Dr Nayeli Gonzalez-Gomez (Oxford Brookes University). The discussion will be chaired by Prof Paul Carding, Associate Dean for Research and Knowledge Exchange in the Faculty of Health and Life Sciences at Oxford Brookes University.
The evening will culminate at 19:00, with a lecture from Trish Greenhalgh, our nominated guest speaker, talking about ‘Science in the public eye: communicating and debating research findings in real time in a global public health crisis.’ Trish is an internationally recognised academic in primary health care and trained as a GP. She brought her interdisciplinary perspective to bear on the research response to the Covid-19 pandemic, looking at diverse themes including clinical assessment of the deteriorating patient by phone and video, the science and anthropology of face coverings, and policy decision-making in conditions of uncertainty. She is a member of Independent SAGE, an interdisciplinary academic team established to provide independent advice on the pandemic direct to the lay public.
There will be an opportunity to submit questions to both the panel and Trish before and during the event.
