Peckham Experiment - Anniversary seminar

Celebrating 80 years since the opening of the Pioneer Health Centre.

In 1935, the Pioneer Health Centre opened its doors in Peckham for the first time. This community health centre, set up by Doctors George Scott Williamson and Innes Pearse, was a unique study into the health of individuals, families and their community. Its findings have had an impact around the world on those seeking to improve health and wellbeing.

The Pioneer Health Foundation exists to promote the legacy of the Pioneer Health Centre and to highlight the relevance and importance of the Peckham Experiment today.
You are invited to join the Pioneer Health Foundation as we celebrate the 80th anniversary of the opening of the Pioneer Health Centre. Join us for an afternoon of discussion as we consider the findings of the Peckham Experiment and the way in which projects and practitioners can use the principles of the Centre today. The afternoon will begin with a lunch at the Nines in Peckham, during which films about the Pioneer Health Centre will be screened.
