Health Inequalities Symposium: Registration is Now Open

Registration is now open for the international symposium “Health Inequalities – An Interdisciplinary Discussion of Socioeconomic Status, Health and Causality” to be held on 24 May 2018 at the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, Amsterdam.

On 24 May 2018 the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW) will host an international and interdisciplinary symposium on health inequalities in Amsterdam, targeted at researchers and experts from various scientific backgrounds as well as opinion-leaders and interested stakeholders.

The symposium is organised by the Scientific Committee on Health Inequalities, jointly established by ALLEA and FEAM (Federation of European Academies of Medicine), and seeks to examine methodological options to analyse the causal effects of socioeconomic disparities on public health. The committee will present a discussion paper reviewing the evidence and charting the main areas of scientific consensus and dissent, in order to facilitate a profound and much needed interdisciplinary discussion about causes and consequences of health inequalities and potential avenues to mitigate them.

Participation is free of charge, but registration is mandatory. Please visit the KNAW website for further information on this symposium.
