'Health inequalities past, present and future' with Professor Sir Chris Whitty


Event details

Professor Sir Chris Whitty will deliver a live-streamed lecture on health inequalities to launch Talk 200, the University's bicentenary lecture and podcast series.

‘Health inequalities past, present and future’ will consider the main drivers of inequalities and disparities in health, how these have changed over time and why addressing them remains a major public health priority.

As a society we face the hard truth that the more socio-economically disadvantaged someone is, the higher their risk of poor health. The world’s greatest killer is not any one individual disease, but the unequal way in which people are born, grow, live, work and age.

In Greater Manchester, our unique health and social care ecosystem means we can rapidly drive innovation and translate breakthroughs into real-world solutions – which can be scaled-up and replicated across the globe.

Professor Whitty is Chief Medical Officer for England, the UK government’s Chief Medical Adviser, and head of the public health profession. His lecture is the first in our Talk 200 series: a mix of in-person and live-streamed lectures and recorded podcast episodes to be released throughout 2024, our bicentenary year.

This event will also include a panel discussion and Q&A, with those joining online able to submit questions using Slido and the code Talk200ChrisWhitty (page not active until 13 February).
