‘Persisting in Error: Evidence for action in health and social policy’

March 15 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

By Professor Kate Pickett from the University of York

Hull University (Wilberforce Building, Lecture Room 32)

Cost: free of charge

Professor Kate Pickett co-authored bestselling book The Spirit Level: why more equal societies almost always do better, which highlights the “pernicious effects that inequality has on societies: eroding trust, increasing anxiety and illness, (and) encouraging excessive consumption”.

It shows that for each of eleven different health and social problems: physical health, mental health, drug abuse, education, imprisonment, obesity, social mobility, trust and community life, violence, teenage pregnancies, and child well-being, outcomes are significantly worse in more unequal rich countries.

In this talk, Kate will demonstrate that reducing inequality should be prioritised, to create sustainable wellbeing for all.

No booking is required however enquiries can be emailed to iae@hull.ac.uk.
