 In Sickness and in Wealth:

Sir Michael Marmot in conversation with Professors Richard Wilkinson & Kate Pickett

Introduced by Christina McAnea (UNISON, Head of Health)

Tuesday 1 March, 6.15pm – 8pm

UNISON Centre, 130 Euston Road, London, NW1 2AY

In every country in the world, the higher you are on the social scale, the longer and healthier your life will be. In Britain, the average person would have eight extra years of healthy life if they had the same opportunities as the richest in our society. This social gradient is not inevitable, so what can governments do to address these dramatic and unjust health inequalities?

At this Equality Trust event, hosted by UNISON, Sir Michael Marmot will discuss the evidence from his latest book, The Health Gap: The Challenge of an Unequal World, with Spirit Level authors Professors Kate Pickett and Richard Wilkinson. Together they will explore the political and policy implications of the research, and take questions from the audience.

Please arrive to register at 6.15, for a prompt 6.30 start. The event is free, but Michael Marmot’s book will be on sale so do bring cash if you are considering a purchase. Please note this is not a catered event.
