Behavioural Science

The behavioural and social sciences are particularly important for public health because many of the issues that undermine or enhance our health outcomes have structural, social and behavioural determinants.

On the 06th March, Public Health England Y&H & Health Education England Y&H held a Behavioural Science Symposium in Leeds. The symposium provided details on the launch of a new collaborative strategy Improving people’s health: applying behavioural and social sciences.  The event also focused on some of the key research and good practice that is already taking place in Yorkshire and the Humber.
