The impact epidemics have continues well beyond the crisis itself: social, psychological and political. Here, we look at two interventions into Ebola. Artist Mary Beth Heffernan talks about the psychosocial benefits of her project to humanise the personal protective equipment (PPE) worn by health care workers during the outbreak. Gillian McKay, who co-ordinated a public health intervention in Sierra Leone in 2014/15, is now researching the impact the outbreak had on family planning services, and how “no-touch” and PPE policies altered the patient-provider relationship. Image Credit: Mary Beth Heffernan, Personal Protective Equipment (photo: Mark Campos) Accessibility Our venue is fully wheelchair accessible. We can offer large print copies of presentations if requested at least a week before the event. Assistance dogs are welcome. This event will be live subtitled with Speech-to-text reporting. There is also a hearing loop in the lecture room, and portable hearing loops are available if requested in advance. If you have any other needs, please email us at [email protected] and we will assist you wherever possible.

Why you should attend #mtpcon London Here are five great reasons why you should join us at Mind the Product London, and it's not just about the coffee: 1. It's the biggest product conference in the worldMind the Product London 2017 brought together 1,600 passionate product people into one space on one day and we expect the same in 2018. There's no bigger event dedicated to product out there. Not only is our crowd the biggest, but we draw the greatest names in product too. 2. Hear real, practical advice you can put to work the next day as well as inspirational ideas on the future of product development and designWe think that a balance is important for a great day of learning. Our speakers are visionaries for the future of product, but they've also got tons of real experience under their belts to pass onto you. 3. Network with a conference full of passionate peers over free lunch and great coffeeOK, so it's a little bit about the coffee. We take care of you all day with plenty to chow down on while you discuss everything you've seen and heard. One of the best bits about Mind the Product is that we offer a single-track experience. No matter who you bump into, you've got the same interesting things to talk about. 4. Build a real community with your product tribeMind the Product isn't just a conference; it's a round-the-year blog and community with chapters in 136+ cities around the world that's dedicated to building a tribe around the art of product. We want product people around the world to come to meet with us and each other, so that we can all become the best in our field and move our discipline forward. 5. Enjoy the industry party of the year for great food and free-flowing drinks & conversationGetting together with your industry peers should not just be inspiring and educational, but good fun.
