London’s Sir Marmot to Speak at Clark as Part of President’s Lecture

Friday, March 30, 2018

 

Michael Marmot

Clark University is set to host Sir Michael Marmot as part of a President’s Lecture titled “The Health Gap: The Challenge of an Unequal World.

The lecture will take place on Wednesday, April 11 at 5 p.m. in the Jefferson Academic Center.

The talk is free and open to the public.

In the lecture, Marmot will explain how policies and interventions need to address the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work, and age; they must not be confined to the health care system. Marmot will make the case that tackling the health gap will require evidence-based action across the whole of society.

About Marmot

Marmot is professor of epidemiology at University College London and immediate past president of the World Medical Association. 

He is the author of “The Health Gap:

The Challenge of an Unequal World” and “Status Syndrome: How Your Place on the Social Gradient Directly Affects Your Health.” Marmot is the Bernard Lown Visiting Professor of Social and Behavioral Sciences at Harvard University and received the 2015 Prince Mahidol Award for Public Health.

He has been awarded honorary doctorates from 18 universities and was knighted in 2000 by Queen Elizabeth II for services to epidemiology and the understanding of health inequalities.
