2nd Singapore International Public Health Conference
Held jointly with the 11th Singapore Public Health & Occupational Medicine Conference at the Waterfront Copthorne Hotel. I managed to attend the opening and initial lectures yesterday morning. Dr Amy Khor, the Senior Minister of State, Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources & Ministry of Health, was once again the guest of honour (as she was for the first edition in 2012). The programme – as befits a public health and occupational medicine conference – is very diverse and interesting, and I was a bit surprised that I recognized perhaps as many of the 600+ participants as I might have at an infectious diseases conference.
The second (and final) day of the conference is today. Topics include obesity, aviation medicine, Sustainable Development Goals, and nutrition.
