CHP International Seminar Series - 19th August 2014
Turning Point Scotland and the Strathclyde International Public Policy Institute's new Centre for Health Policy, University of Strathclyde warmly invite you to a free half day seminar to discuss poverty, housing and homelessness issues.
Deborah Padgett, Professor of Social Work and Global Public Health, at New York University (NYU) will deliver the keynote presentation. The event will take place on Tuesday 19th August 2014 at the Lecture Theatre, Court / Senate Suite, Collins Building, University of Strathclyde, 22 Richmond Street, Glasgow G1 1XQ. A map of the building is accessible from the link below.
The event will take place from 10.00-12.30 with registration, tea and coffee from 9.30am.
Professor Padgett’s visit to Scotland is an exciting opportunity to share best practice and learning within an international context.
Professor Padgett has a wealth of experience doing qualitative research on homelessness in New York City, including two major studies on service engagement and examining mental health issues in individuals experiencing homelessness. This included assessing the impact of ‘Pathways to Housing’, the original Housing First model now adapted by Turning Point Scotland in Glasgow.
The event is part of the new Centre for Health Policy International Seminar Series and Deborah’s visit is part of a wider trans-Atlantic partnership being developed between the SIPPI Centre for Health Policy, University of Strathclyde and New York University on health and housing, poverty and public health.
Other speakers at the event include:
·           Professor Sir Harry Burns, Professor of Global Public Health, University of Strathclyde
