2nd Annual Health and Inequalities Conference: Economic, Environmental and Health Inequalities in a time of Austerity

26 Jun - 26 Jun 2019

TBC, TBC

The Faculty of Public Health is collaborating with the Centre for Health and Development (CHAD) based at the University of Staffordshire on this year's CHAD Annual Health and Inequalities Conference in Stoke. There is overwhelming evidence that deprivation is associated with worse physical, social and mental health and well-being. It is also clear that austerity policies implemented since the 2007-8 financial crisis have exacerbated both deprivation and its impacts.

This conference will present some of the most recent and emerging research around the themes of living, moving and economic inequalities together with examples of good practice in collaborative public health responses. Keynote presentations include Professor Mark Gamsu and Professor John Middleton and workshops include universal credit and Personal Independent Payments, homelessness, the obesogenic environment, county lines, mental health, loan sharking, payday loans, and environmental inequalities. There will also be an exhibition of some of the best entries to the recent FPH ‘what does public health look like’ photograph competition and stalls demonstrating the work of the West Midlands NHIR Clinical Research Network, PHE local data, and a collaboration between a Big Local Project and local authority public health on using data to most effectively address the effects of social and environmental inequalities in a deprived community.
