Keynote Speakers Announced for 2014

ICPH 2014 is excited to announce this year's keynote speakers Professor Dame Carol Black and Professor Jim Lucey.

Dame Carol Black's opening address focuses on the groundswell in approaches to health and work. Increasing longevity means that people need to be actively at work to a greater age, which brings additional challenges to the ever changing workplace environment. 

Life altering transitions can be gradual or sudden, anticipated or out of the blue. Professor Jim Lucey's multimedia presentation, our closing address, focuses on how a dramatic moment in his career affected pilot Chesley Sullenberger, and what doctors can learn from his experience.
