RIAMS Updates May 2013

June 5, 2013
Latest News

May saw the launch of a brand new resource for Housing practitioners, academics and professionals dealing with poor housing. The Housing Health International Research Bulletin is edited by experts Professor David Ormandy of Warwick University and RHE Associate Dr Steve Battersby who currently runs the very successful RHE UK Housing Forum.   The bulletin is a unique service which references UK and international research into the relationship between housing and health. It also gives subscribers the chance to comment, contribute articles and share documents and images. In a constantly changing field the bulletin will help practitioners maintain their competence to enforce HHRS.

We are also delighted to announce the addition of a new web forum to our existing collection. The Jigsaw Public Health Forum will be run by Chartered EHP Pete Hill who has gained a national reputation for his work on Public Health engagement. Providing insightful comment, advice, and links to Jigsaw’s many social media platforms we hope the new forum will develop into an invaluable resource for EHPs and Public Health Professionals. 

For those of you on facebook, we have just relaunched our facebook page as a daily news and updates page for Environmental Health and Licensing and can be found here.
