The Science of Wellbeing @ The Core

The Science of Wellbeing @ The Core


Popular Newcastle city centre workspace, The Core, makes a final call for people to book their free spot at the next ‘Science of…’ event taking place via Zoom 1pm-2pm on Thursday 10 February.

The first ‘Science of…’ event of the 2022 calendar, this regular inspirational feature, launched by The Core in 2015, is always well attended by the Newcastle Helix community. And now that it is available through an online platform, the ‘Science of…’ event series has opened up to attendees from around the world.

The innovative event series delivers critical thinking and conversation – covering a diverse range of topics, it connects academia, business and community with data, theory and experience; sparking lively debate into everyday challenges.

Hosted by Toby Hyam, Director at Creative Space, the appointed building and community managers of The Core, this February’s session delves into the ‘Science of Wellbeing’.  Attendees will hear from local data-driven employee wellbeing, insights and tech business ART Health Solutions and  Newcastle University, as well as having the opportunity to discuss the issues raised and share experiences with peers.

Phill Bell Ph.D, Chief Operations Officer of ART Health Solutions will discuss the impact of the workplace on the health, wellbeing and performance of employees, utilising real-world and scientifically collected data. He will demonstrate the importance of understanding how workplaces affect employees, both from the perspective of supporting employee health and maintaining bottom line business performance.

Prof. Emma Stevenson, Newcastle University will provide an overview of brain health and the role that nutrition has in optimising brain health. She will discuss recent research on nutritional strategies to optimise brain health and future directions in this field of research.

Emma is Deputy Dean of Population Health Sciences Institute and Professor of Sport and Exercise Science in the Faculty of Medical Sciences at Newcastle University. Emma is also a Principal Investigator in both the Human Nutrition Research Centre and the Healthier Lives Centre of Research Excellence at Newcastle University. Emma is currently leading the Medical Research Council funded NuBrain consortium on nutrition for healthy brain ageing.

Not to be missed, the ‘Science of Wellbeing’ event is already proving popular with academics and businesses alike so book your place today to secure a spot.

Whilst The Core event series has made good use of digital platforms during the ‘work from home’ notices of the last 24 month, the centre team are looking forward to inviting people back into the large ground floor event space this year. Popular amongst The Core occupiers,  wider Newcastle Helix community, and beyond, The Core event space can be hired for meetings, workshops, seminars, exhibitions and public and private parties. With flexible and accessible layouts available, The Core can accommodate a range of event sizes, hosting, catering and media requirements.
