In this year's national #ARCseminar series, we look at health inequalities.
Here, in the second webinar of the series, we explore: Regional health inequalities.
Three short 10-minute talks cover research on health inequalities between English regions.
Chair: This webinar is chaired by Prof Clare Bambra, Inequalities lead for NIHR ARC North East and North Cumbria and the NIHR ARCs nationally. She leads the NIHR ARCs National Consortia for Health and Care Inequalities and has leadership roles in several other large research collaborations. An NIHR Senior Investigator and Professor of Public Health, she is an interdisciplinary social scientist working at the interface of public health, social epidemiology, social policy, and health geography. Her research focuses on understanding and reducing health inequalities.
