The event is organised by a scientific group including Professor Tracey Young (School of Health Related Research, University of Sheffield and NIHR ARC Yorkshire and Humber theme co-lead); Dr Trish Holch (Co-lead of the Centre for Psychological Research, Leeds Beckett University and Honorary Research Fellow, University of Leeds) and Dr Jill Carlton (School of Health Related Research, University of Sheffield).
