Conference History

From humble beginnings and a simple concept and concern shared by seven academics from around the world in 2000, the Helsinki 7 have now been organizing international conferences since 2002.  The series of International In Sickness and in Health Conferences have been delivered with specific themes focusing on issues of ethics, power and practice. With each conference our community of scholars and health professionals continues to grow.
