By blocking people’s access to the kinds of opportunities and resources available to others, social exclusion and marginalisation enormously disadvantage those affected. This can also have a significant impact on their health, and this seminar will explore some of these health challenges, focussing on Romanian public health priorities, including vaccination policy and the health of migrants and refugees. It will also consider the possibilities to address these challenges. Schools are important sites for communicating evidence-informed health messages, as teachers are well trusted, experienced in working with diverse populations, and are open to innovative approaches. As such, part of this seminar will uncover the role that science education research and practice can play in health promotion.

Location: Timisoara Science Festival, 11 Ady Endre Str., Timisoara, Romania
