12th annual YOUNG RESEARCHERS' FORUM - Marseille 
Wednesday 20 November 2019

The 12th annual Young Researchers’ Forum (YRF) will be held on Wednesday 20 November. The YRF event for 2019 merges the YRF day traditionally organised by ASPHER in partnership with EUPHA with the University College London (UCL) Digital Public Health PhD Track day. It is a full day even this year held with registration starting at 8:45 and finishing at 17:00. In addition to poster and oral presentations, this year’s event will also feature demonstrations of digital technologies from selected young researchers. 

The British Red Cross and Medicin Sans Frontiers will host a Missing Maps Workshop (make sure to bring your laptop!) and there will be guest lectures by Emma Honkala, Consultant, WHO; Stefan Buttigieg, Specialist Trainee in Public Health Medicine; and ASPHER Andreja Stampar Medalist, Gaetano Maria Fara, Emeritus Professor, Sapienza University of Rome and Director of the International School of Epidemiology and Preventive Medicine at the Ettore Majorana Foundation and Centre for Scientific Culture in Erice.

This year’s event will be followed up by an evening social from 18:30.
