Professor Jones work focuses on naming, measuring, and addressing the impacts of racism on health and well-being around the world. Her allegories on 'race' and racism illuminate topics that are otherwise difficult for many people to understand or discuss: that racism exists, racism is a system, racism saps the strength of the whole society, and we can act to dismantle racism.
Professor Jones will join the Faculty of Public Health President, Professor Kevin Fenton, and senior public health leaders from the four nations of the UK to discuss this critical public health issue.
The Faculty of Public Health' Distinguished Lecture Series: Conversations on the Future of Public Health', will involve talks by senior national and global leaders discussing the future of public health.
