Michael Marmot

RESCHEDULED: Due to illness this event has been rescheduled and will now take place on 19th June. If you can no longer attend please contact [email protected]

Taking action to reduce health inequalities is a matter of social justice, and in developing strategies for tackling health inequalities we need to confront the social gradient in health, not just the difference between the worst off and everybody else.

There is clear evidence when we look across countries that national policies make a difference and that much can be done in cities, towns and local areas.

Join Professor of Epidemiology at University College London, Sir Michael Marmot, to hear his thoughts on health inequalities and what action is needed to really tackle the health gap.

Due to overwhelming demand this event has now been moved from Millenium Gallery to The Pennine Lecture Theatre at Sheffield Hallam University.
