We’re very proud of one of our Fellows – Professor Jane Appleton – who gave her inaugural professorial lecture on 7 June at Oxford Brookes University.
Jane’s lecture, Safeguarding child wellbeing: the public health role of health visitors, was very well attended.
She explained the public health role and value of contemporary health visiting, and described the unique contribution of health visiting to safeguarding children in the community. Drawing on research, Jane made the case for why we need health visitors to promote child welfare and wellbeing.
