London Met to host Health, Housing and Community Conference

The University will be hosting a one day conference to raise awareness about how health can be improved in community settings.

Date: 28 March 2017

London Met will be hosting a Health, Housing and Community Conference on 29 March at the Holloway Road campus.

The conference aims to give prospective students an understanding of the variety of courses that can be studied at London Met. The featured topics will be of particular interest to students currently studying Access to Social Work, Access to Nursing, Housing and Health and Social Care.

Anna Kamyk, a BSc Community Development and Leadership student, said: "I want to take part in the student panel, as I believe that it might be helpful to share my experiences with others. And this is inherent in Community Development value of ‘Working and Learning’ together.”

“I hope to learn from other professionals' experience and how our practice might be interlinked and how to work in partnership. This will be the main benefit of this event,” she added.

The conference will feature workshops delivered by undergraduate teaching staff, interactive sessions on health, housing, citizenship and community, an overview of the current courses available at the university, a student panel with London Met students and a tour of the Holloway Road campus.

The conference is being organised as part of the introduction of the new BSc Health and Community Development course at London Met.
