MAPS UK/Ireland Chapter Meeting – A Journey in Medical Affairs

March 19 @ 1:00 PM 2:00 PM GMT

Climate change is one of the greatest challenges of our time and threatens the quality of life for billions across the globe. All industries must take responsibility for improving their sustainable practices to protect the planet and the future. Healthcare is no exception; 4% of UK carbon emissions come from the NHS alone. Medical Affairs can play a leadership role in preventing, preparing for, and responding to the health impacts of climate change, benefiting patients, businesses, and the planet.

We welcome everyone working in Medical Affairs and the wider life sciences industry to this important discussion with two renowned pioneers in the field of sustainable healthcare – Dr Fiona Adshead (Chair, Sustainable Healthcare Coalition) and Dr Emma Iovoli (Life Sciences Consultant, Climate and Health) – chaired by Dr. Ashton Harper (Head of Medical Affairs, Roche Diagnostics UK&I). This discussion will focus on a range of case studies that have demonstrated impact in decarbonising health and social care pathways and explore what needs to happen next. We hope you will find this session interesting, insightful, and inspiring.

Discussion Objective:

  • Understand how the healthcare industry contributes to climate change
  • What role can medical affairs play in helping to improve sustainable practices?
  • Explore practical examples of decarbonizing health and social care pathways
