Tackling Health Inequalities
Join us for a webinar with Professor Sir Michael Marmot, Farzana Khan and Natalie Creay as they discuss health inequalities in light of The Marmot Review and Covid-19.
Ten years after the original report, Marmot and his team produced a review in February 2020, revealing that health inequalities in Britain have only worsened.
The COVID-19 pandemic has also startlingly highlighted inequalities in British society. It seems clear that the pandemic will further compound health inequalities, with a looming employment and economic crisis looming, the housing crisis un-resolved and public services under intense pressure.
In light of the review and the Coronavirus pandemic, My Fair London, in collaboration with The Equality Trust and Toynbee Hall, invite you to an online event with a discussion from Professor Sir Michael Marmot (Director of the International Institute for Society and Health, MRC Research Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health, University College, London), Farzana Khan (writer, director, cultural producer, arts educator and Executive Director and Co-founder of Healing Justice London) and Natalie Creay (Director for Black Thrive).
The webinar will take place on Wednesday 8th July with a talk by Michael Marmot followed by responses from Farzana Khan and Natalie Creary. The event will be chaired by Sian Williams, Toynbee Hall’s Director of Policy. Once you have completed the sign-up form you will receive email confirmation. The day before the event you will receive an email with Zoom sign-in details. This is an open event and we encourage people from different communities, political backgrounds and walks of life to attend.
Inequality harms us all, only together can we stop it.
