LOC in the Lakes 2022: Working differently for population health – inspiring change to reduce inequalities

Learning Organisation Collaborative (LOC) Seventh International Festival #LOCintheLakes

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”

Wayne Dyer




Health inequalities are impacting on people in our society like never before. Our colleagues, our friends, our neighbours, our families, ourselves – too many are experiencing poorer health and wellbeing simply due to the circumstances into which they are born, and how they go about their daily lives.

Over the years improvements in health inequalities have stalled, and the more recent covid-19 pandemic has widened the gap between the most and least deprived areas. It is now more important than ever to challenge mind-sets, and begin to bring about real change in order to achieve better health for everyone.

That’s why LOC in the Lakes 2022 will be focusing on health inequalities, considering how we can think and work differently to improve health and wellbeing for the people of north and west Cumbria. We’ll be looking at how we can take more action now to enable individuals to start well, live well, age well, and die well.

Keynote speakers:

  • Professor Sir Michael Marmot – Professor of Epidemiology at University College London, Director of the UCL Institute of Health Equity, and Past President of the World Medical Association. Professor Marmot has led research groups on health inequalities for over 40 years, and is truly an expert within this field. In 2021, Professor Marmot received BMJ’s Outstanding Contribution to Health award.
  • More to be announced soon!

  • On offer we’ll have some practical learning, innovative and inspiring stories, and the latest thinking around tackling health inequalities
