MSPGH Special Seminar: 19th July 2018 – Syndemics and health inequalities: opportunities for improving health

12.30-1.30pm, Thur 19th July 2018
Seminar Room 515, Level 5, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton

Professor Lisa McDaid, Professor of Social Sciences and Health, University of Glasgow, Scotland

The seminar will explore the potential for ‘syndemics’ – the term given to the co-occurrence of multiple, interrelated disease epidemics at the individual- and population-level, which develop and are sustained due to harmful social context  – to further our understandings of health inequalities.  It will draw on examples from Professor McDaid’s research with communities at high risk of poor health.  The seminar will reflect on the potential for new community participative and asset-based approaches and engaging communities in health improvement research.
