The full recording is now online of one of the world's leading statisticians speaking at HealthWatch's 30th birthday event last week. Professor David Spiegelhalter's talk: "Trustworthy communication of risk and evidence: the battle against naughty numbers in the news” delighted a full house at the Medical Society of London on Tuesday 27th July.

David Spiegelhalter holds the Winton Professorship of the Public Understanding of Risk, at the University of Cambridge, England. He is the joint winner of the 2021 HealthWatch Award, shared with Professor Christina Pagel of University College London, who will receive hers at the HealthWatch AGM in October (date to be confirmed).

The one-hour recording is now on the HealthWatch youtube channel, where you can also find recordings of some of our previous events. A link to his lightly edited transcript is on our Award winners page.

Below see Professor Spieglehalter, with Professor Susan Bewley, chair of HealthWatch, as they cut the 30th birthday cake.
