When it comes to our health, what convinces us to change our unhealthy behaviour? What is the role of graphics and data visualisation in the communication of risk to the public?
Join UK Chief Medical Officer Sally Davies and David Spiegelhalter, University of Cambridge Winton Professor for the Understanding of Risk and author of the Norm Chronicles, for a discussion about our perception of risk when it comes to our health. From Florence Nightingale to the work of contemporary public health professionals, explore how picturing health information can reveal hidden meaning and change lives. Author and Radio 4 presenter Michael Blastland will chair the evening.
