Professor Patricia Kingori will be our tenth Annual Elizabeth Blackwell Public Lecture speaker. The lecture 'Facts, fakes, society and health', will take place on 22 January 2024 at City Hall, Bristol.

Patricia Kingori will share her work into how people, places and processes are involved in the complexities of falsehoods. Through a focus on her global health research she plans to bring the topic to life, provide new insights, and stimulate engaging discussion.
