Health Scares Scoping Meeting

Health Scares Scoping Meeting


We are setting up this invitation-only meeting to explore interest in a regular meeting / network on health scares. In this initial meeting we will have brief presentations covering a range of topics in the context of health-scares, including: 

  • The role of traditional and social media
  • Symptom reporting, nocebo effects and mass psychogenic illness
  • Changes in help-seeking behaviour, and in clinician- and policy-maker behaviour
  • The role of mistrust and conspiracy theory

In the first part of the day we will cover a broad range of areas, with speakers from psychology, anthropology and public health discussing their work in the context of terrorism, vaccination, wind farms and more. In the second part, we will explore possibilities of organising a more regular meeting. 

Please note that due to space restrictions, this meeting is invitation only.

Attendees will need to arrange and pay for their own travel and accommodation.

21st Annual King’s Neuromuscular Disease Symposium


This educational meeting is aimed primarily at clinicians who treat patients with diseases of the peripheral nervous system and muscle.  It aims to provide practical general clinical up-dates as well as an introduction to the science underlying neuromuscular diseases.  It should be of interest to general adult neurologists, clinical neurophysiologists, paediatric neurologists, clinical neuroscientists and allied health professionals, and suitable for both consultants and trainees.

The format will be a hybrid of face-to-face and online webinar. We hope to meet many of you in person, for traditional networking opportunities. Most lecturers will attend in person.

To encourage a live audience, we are offering free lunch/coffee for those attending in person. Registration will be the same cost whether you attend in person or virtually. Please specify when booking whether you intend to come in person so we can order catering. So as not to waste food, please tell [email protected] if this changes. The deadline for catering orders is 10 days in advance, so people registering after 17 January are not guaranteed to get any food although may still attend in person.

You will be emailed a link for the virtual event a few days in advance. This link will also allow viewing a recording of the event for a few months afterwards. 

If you register on the day there may be a delay of up to an hour before you receive the link because our administrator has to do this manually.
