Prof Luc de Witte, CATCH Professor and renowned name in the field of technology and innovative healthcare, was the guest of the last ScHARR seminar series on Tuesday 14th February.

Luc delivered a fascinating talk entitled “Health in Slums: Challenges and potential solutions” to a packed audience. This talk aimed to give more insight into the challenging living conditions of the slums’ communities and to discuss potentials solutions to reduce the burden of ill health due to these conditions. Luc also discussed the current projects running as part of the Health in Slums programme, and some of the future plans for ScHARR and CATCH.

The seminar was attended by many ScHARR staff and students from different sections and has instigated some interesting discussions about the topic.

Luc will return for a public talk on Friday 10th March 2017 for his Inaugural Lecture entitled “Technology; who cares?!” in The Diamond as part of the Sheffield Festival of Science and Engineering. Booking is required – please secure your place here.
