Wolfson Associate Director invited to talk at ' Addressing Health Inequalities the Third Sector Way' Conference
(4 December 2009)
Dr Mark Booth, Associate Director of the Institute, was recently invited to address delegates at ' Addressing Health Inequalities the Third Sector Way' - a one day conference at the Sage in Gateshead, organised and hosted by Du - a Community Interest Company based in Durham.
Mark spoke about intervention generated inequalities, arguing that public health campaigns cumulatively often benefit those who ‘opt in’ whilst leaving those who ‘opt out’ behind. This process can create a gap that widens with each new campaign, even as the overall health of the nation improves.
