European Society of Preventive Medicine - ARK Partnership Launch Event

We are delighted to announce the new partnership between Ageing Research at King's (ARK) and the European Society of Preventive Medicine (ESPM). To launch the partnership, ARK and ESPM will be hosting a joint symposium at the Science Gallery, Guy's Hospital Campus, on Wednesday 27 September 2023. All welcome but registration is required through Eventbrite (link above).

The ESPM - ARK partnership will facilitate the intersection of basic research, clinical medicine, and community physical, mental and financial health with a focus on the prevention and prediction of chronic and age-related diseases across the lifespan. We plan a series of public engagement events, academic-industry workshops, and education activities for postgraduate and clinical students as well as postdoctoral researchers and healthcare professionals.
