HERON is an international public engagement network funded by the Wellcome Trust and aimed at people involved in action and research to tackle inequalities in health and health service use. It brings together people from the community, local charities, public health researchers and health practitioners with a vision of having a collaborative approach to research in the community.

The 2018 HERON conference will include presentations, workshops, discussion, art and more on the theme of ‘current and future directions in health equity research and action’ from researchers, community organisations, and healthcare representatives. The conference will take a future-orientated perspective to explore how we can learn from present research and tackle inequalities through future research and action. You can register to attend this free conference here.
