PSNC supports the 2nd World Conference on Family Health

The creation of an international forum for the exchange and analysis of the results of research conducted in Poland and around the world is the aim of the 2nd Family Health Conference, planned for 24-25 October, 2021. The event organized by Calisia University, the World Institute of Family Health and the Institute – European Observatory of Health Inequalities will take place in a hybrid version, with the technological support provided by PSNC.

The conference will be a continuation of the considerations on the health condition of families, undertaken during the first edition of the conference, which took place in Kalisz, Poland in 2019. Participants will try to identify not only new research areas, but also to draw attention to the current threats to family health in times of crises and wars.

The plenary session and panel sessions will focus on the following topics:
• Development of the health situation in Poland, with particular emphasis on the years 1990-2020
• Family health care in Poland, Israel, Mozambique and Ukraine
• Development of the health situation in Central European countries
• Coronavirus pandemic
• Tobacco smoking and the epidemiology of tobacco-related diseases
• Alcohol consumption and epidemiology of alcohol-related diseases

The event will take place (hybrid conference) in two locations – the Wojciech Bogusławski Theatre in Kalisz and the Institute of Gears Research Excellence Center.
