Public lecture with Professor Tiffany Veinot
Chaired by Professor Trish Greenhalgh

Health disparities are differences in disease incidence, prevalence, morbidity, mortality, or survival in one group compared to the general population. Health disparities are a product of macro-level social, political and economic mechanisms and intermediary social determinants of health such as living and working conditions and social networks.

This presentation presents an approach to developing “upstream” informatics interventions that focus on the social, political, economic and physical contexts in which health is (re-)produced. The presentation outlines key insights drawn from three community-based research projects in the United States focused on developing and evaluating upstream informatics interventions.

This guest lecture is from the Oxford University Translational Health Sciences programme.
