For richer, for poorer: how could political pledges to tackle health inequalities be realised?

October 25, 2017 @ 6:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Join the debate at the Cambridge Festival of Ideas 2017!

When: Wednesday 25 October: 6:00pm – 7:00pm. Location: Christ’s College, Yusuf Hamied Theatre, St Andrew’s Street, CB2 3BU

Join this panel discussion chaired by Professor Dame Theresa Marteau: How many years less can the poorest 5% of people expect to live compared to the richest 5%? How many years do the public find acceptable? And what can we do about it?

Our panel includes Carol Brayne (Professor of Public Health), David Howarth (Professor of Law and Public Policy, and previously MP for Cambridge), Dr Julian Huppert (Director of the Intellectual Forum at Jesus College, lay member of the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough NHS CCG, and previously MP for Cambridge), and Dr Rachel Pechey (psychologist researching changing behaviour to reduce health inequalities).
