In this year’s national #ARCseminar series, we explore how health inequity cuts across life stages and places.
The first webinar of the series explores: Health inequalities in early life.
Three short 10-minute talks cover research on health inequalities in the context of maternity, ethnicity, mental health and care-leavers.
This webinar is chaired by Prof Vashti Berry, an Associate Professor in Prevention Science. Prof Berry is the Director of the Children and Young People’s Mental Health Research Collaboration (ChYMe) at Exeter and sits within the NIHR ARC South West Peninsula (PenARC) where she leads work on children’s health.
