1 February 2021 – Professor Smail talks at RMA Meeting on Epidemics, Public Health and COVID

We were doubly privileged and delighted to welcome another Radyr resident, Emeritus Professor Simon Smail, CBE, as the speaker at our meeting, via Zoom, on Monday, 1 February 2021.  Professor Smail has had a most distinguished career including a period as Vice-Chairman of the Public Health Wales NHS Trust, Vice-Chairman of Leonard Cheshire Disability and (some years ago) being the ‘Radio Doctor’ for Radio Wales and presenting some health TV programmes on Channel 4. He is therefore superbly placed to talk to us about the current virus, how it has been dealt with, and where it is going – all within the context of previous challenges such as Spanish Flu and AIDS.

His talk is titled ‘Epidemics, Public Health and COVID’.  Given the current uplift in concern over the pandemic and the increase in restrictions, this is a talk not to be missed.

The meeting also covered other local topics including developing thoughts on the 2021 Radyr & Morganstown May Festival.
