President's blog

In his new blog, Professor Russell Viner updates on key events and his activities to improve children and young people's health and to support our members.
From a long-term financial settlement to the NHS to a childhood obesity plan... Russell considers the recent updates and how we can engage with Government to help ensure CYP remain a priority.
Russell considers the state of play and next steps in the campaign to tackle childhood obesity - perhaps the biggest public health problem facing our children and young people.
As Professor of Adolescent Health at the UCL Institute of Child Health in London, Russell works with young people with diabetes at University College Hospital and directs the Department of Health Obesity Policy Research Unit.

You may want to become a media spokesperson or support our campaigns to Parliament, help us develop high quality courses or build a mentoring support network. 

Or, consider long-term opportunities to support our global child health programmes in Rwanda, Mynamar and Sierra Leone.

And, each month we announce vacancies for formal roles in the College, such as Regional Representatives and policy or sub-specialty committee members.
