Professor Lisa Jackson Pulver and Elizabeth Layland

Whatever the destination, a journey should be seen as many steps. Mine started the day I decided to run away from home, and, with some help, enter a hospital based nurses training program. I had no idea then that my journey would take me from there to arts, to counselling, to medical school and on to public health at a large university. What I also did not realise was how my initial training at PTS (preliminary training school) as a pupil nurse would become a cornerstone of my work today.

This talk will explore the role of hope, opportunity, equity and optimism in addressing inequity in today’s systems of health and education. It will provide some examples of the crucial moments and decisions in my own career and offer some thoughts on the question ‘Where to next?’
