An evening with Florence Nightingale – using data to save lives

January 25, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Professor Noel-Ann Bradshaw is the Deputy Dean for the Faculty of Engineering and Science at the University of Greenwich.  This talk will look at Nightingale’s understanding and management of data that influenced policy makers, in the British Army and the Government, during and after the Crimean war. Her methods brought about improved conditions for both soldiers and the working classes, and are as relevant today’s data-focussed society as they were in Victorian Britain.
