Professor Jim McManus (Director of Public Health)

July 2019

Professor Jim McManus has over thirty years experience in the public health industry. This all started as a volunteer and a service provider driven by a passion for psychology and a desire to be socially useful.

He is now the Director of Public Health at Hertfordshire County Council and vice President of the Association of Directors of Public Health. He is a Chartered Psychologist, British Psychological Society Fellow and co-founder and chair of the Behavioural Science and Public Health Network. Jim is also a visiting professor at both the London School of Economics and the University of Hertfordshire and completed six years as deputy chair of the National Institute for Health Research Public Health Advisory Board.

Obviously Jim has a lot of experience across the public health world, but he manages to communicate this in the first RWBS podcast in an interesting and humorous way.
