Every year, public health scientists in Cambridge join the Cambridge Science Festival to explain how their research tackles today’s big threats to public health.
With events from astronomy to zoology, the next Cambridge Science Festival will welcome everyone to explore and discuss science through talks, hands-on activities, performances, exhibitions, tours and films.
Public health is the science and art of promoting and protecting the health and well-being of whole populations, preventing ill-health and prolonging life through the organised efforts of society
