The science and art of prioritisation is a key function of public health; using a variety of scientific methods to identify matters that impact on health and wellbeing, deciding which are the most pertinent in each context and then mobilising the allocation of resource in response. 

 

The masterclass is led by Prof. John Bryson and Dr Suzanne Bartington (both University of Birmingham) and Prof. Alister James Scott. John holds the Chair in Enterprise and Economic Geography at the University of Birmingham, Suzanne is Clinical Research Fellow and Honorary Specialty Registrar in Public Health, University of Birmingham) and Alister is Professor in Environmental Geography, Northumbria University. John and Suzanne are both involved in a five-year NERC funded project that is applying an urban diagnostics approach to the problem of air quality in British cities.
