Prof Volker Scheid to speak at seminar series to develop global health advocates
31 October 2013
Prof. Volker Scheid will participate in an event organised by the Royal College of Physicians and Alma Mata on 28 November 2013 from 18.30 to 20.00 at the Royal College of Physicians in Regents Park.
The event is part of the Global health: developing leaders series of free seminars and the theme of the evening is "Travellers and other minority communities: navigating the NHS and alternative approaches to health.
This seminar aims to build awareness of communities that use the NHS in a limited way, or have difficulties with accessing NHS services, such as some Gypsy and Irish Traveller communities. It will also look into whether there are other mechanisms for managing health within these communities and what role mainstream health services should play.
