Course summary

The Public Health and Society team, led by Professor Kate Pickett, investigates the social patterning of health, by socioeconomic position, ethnicity and gender as well as age. We focus on the social and healthcare factors which play a role in inequalities in health and draw out the implications for improving policy and practice and conduct research with childbearing women and their babies, their families and careers.

Our research includes studies of how ethnicity and culture mediate the experience of health care, how neighbourhood contexts and socioeconomic disadvantage influence health.
