The Changing Geography of Ill Health

When: Wednesday 25 November 2020 6pm-7pm, online (or watch later)

Speaker: Professor Chris Whitty  

Ill health has always been concentrated in particular places; tackling these pockets of ill health is an essential role for public health. These may be driven by environmental factors, demography, deprivation and healthcare provision. In the UK, the geography of ill health has shifted widely over time and continues to do so. Specific areas have particular health challenges, including coastal towns, rural districts and inner city areas.

This lecture will consider the shifting geography of ill health in the UK and globally, and its implications.
