Mind the Gap: New approaches to tackling health inequality

Health inequalities are described by the NHS as ‘preventable, unfair and unjust’ – so in the 21st century, why do they still persist? Health Foundation research has shown that the risk of preventable death is higher in more deprived local areas, with people living in these areas at risk of developing long term health conditions as much as ten years earlier. Digital innovations are starting to be used to address both physical and mental health inequalities – but there is a long way to go. 

Join Demos and JUUL to discuss solutions to the gulf in health provision across the country, and how tech could be the answer to the UK’s most pressing public health battles.

Speakers include:

  • Helen Goodman MP
  • Polly Mackenzie – Chief Executive, Demos
  • Max Chambers – Director, Government and Public Affairs, JUUL
  • Helen Milner OBE – Chief Executive, Good Things Foundation
