Are you a teacher, researcher, student or in any other way interested in our collaboration? Every month the EWUU alliance will organise a meeting about research and education of the alliance. The first three lectures are organised by the institute 4 Preventive Health.
On Thursday March 21, 12.30 – 13.15 hrs, we will host an online lunch lecture on “Increasing health disparities call for collaborative policies and greater social security” by Carlijn Kamphuis (UU), Jantien van Berkel (UU), Lilian van der Ven (Julius Centre, UMCU)
Individuals in lower socio-economic positions (SEP) live on average up to 9 years shorter and up to 25 years longer with disease than those in higher SEP. “The tide can only be turned with an intersectoral approach of the underlying causes of these health disparities,” say UU scientists Carlijn Kamphuis and Jantien van Berkel. Lilian van der Ven (UMC Utrecht) is already building a collaborative approach. While they know how to find each other, they are looking for more input, especially from scientists in governance and technology.
