The relation between social factors and health outcomes through social-to-biological processes: Considerations for cancer epidemiology

March 10, 2022 |12:45 am - 1:45 pm

In this seminar, Michelle Kelly-Irving will outline the embodiment dynamic conceptual framework used to examine how health inequalities are partly constructed through social-to-biological processes. She will provide empirical examples of the social gradient in biological health and how this potentially relates to inequalities in cancer incidence and progression.

Relevant to anyone interested in health inequalities and cancer outcomes in particular, this webinar will include time for participant questions and give attendees to a broader understanding of the construction of health inequalities over the life course through social-to-biological processes.

The second in the Inequalities in Cancer Outcomes Network (ICON) series of seminars on Inequalities in Cancer Outcomes, this seminar is offered jointly with the LSHTM Centre for Global Chronic Conditions.


Michelle Kelly-Irving, Social epidemiologist, Director of the Equity research team (Cerpop-UMR1295 Inserm-Université Toulouse III)
