Sir Harry Burns
on behalf of British Association of Sport & Exercise Medicine

Sir Harry Burns graduated in medicine from Glasgow University in 1974. He became a Consultant Surgeon in 1984 and, while working with patients in the east end of Glasgow, he gained insight into the complex inter-relationships between socio-economic status and illness. He completed a Masters Degree in Public Health in 1990 and shortly afterwards was appointed Medical Director of The Royal Infirmary. In 1994, he became Director of Public Health for Greater Glasgow Health Board, a position he occupied until 2005 when he was appointed Chief Medical Officer for Scotland. In this post, his responsibilities included aspects of public health policy and health protection. He has continued his work on how societies can create health and wellbeing and is particularly interested in methods for reducing inequalities in health.

In April 2014 he became Professor of Global Public Health at Strathclyde University where he will continue to research how societies create health and how complex systems theory can be used to improve the health of populations.
