The Jubilee Scientific Conference celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Faculty of Public Health in Pleven took place on 1-3 October 2015 under the title of “Public Health Policy and Practice”.
Divided into three plenary sessions, various conference topics were tackled in the context of both the negative public health trends that Bulgaria faces and the urgency to find appropriate solutions. Bringing into focus the epidemiology of infectious and chronic non-infectious diseases, the ethics of public health and clinical practice as well as health promotion and management, quality of health care and medical rehabilitation and ergotherapy, the Jubilee Conference has provided health professionals and managers with the opportunity to exchange valuable experience and ideas and to enhance their professional connections in the field of public health research and practice for prevention and control of public health processes.
The abstracts of the Jubilee Scientific Conference comprise the latest edition of the Journal of Biomedical and Clinical Research, issued by the Medical University – Pleven twice per year. Entirely dedicated to conference itself, this edition also features the Rector of the Medical University Prof. Dr. Slavcho Tomov who describes the Faculty of Public Health as the “leading structure within our university and a solid educational center for training of public health professionals and managers”.
