Marie Curie in England lecture series

Marie Curie wants to make sure that everyone has access to the care and support they need when they’re living with a terminal illness.

We know there are many people who don’t get the care and support they need. This may be because of the nature of their illness, where they live, how old they are, their ethnicity or their sexual orientation or one or more of a number of other factors. 

We also know that care for people at the end of their lives will inevitably become a more pressing issue as people live longer and need more complex care towards the end of life. 

The Marie Curie England lecture series aims to explore these issues, giving an audience the opportunity to hear from experts working in other areas.

At each lecture there will be a panel discussion offering the opportunity for the audience to get involved. 

All of our lectures are free to attend, but you’ll need to register your place using the instructions below.
