Health Without Borders - Epidemics in the Era of Globalization

Prof. Paolo Vineis

Chair of Environmental Epidemiology at Imperial College London, School of Public Health

in conversation with

Sir Michael Marmot, FBA, FMedSci, FRCP

Professor of Epidemiology and Public Health, University College London

Summary

Different trends in the world are now converging to create a suspense about what our future holds. Climate changes, mass migrations, wars, the economic crisis, the epidemics of obesity and diabetes and unprecedented environmental degradation can no longer be considered separate problems to be dealt with in isolation. Rather, these and other global threats to human health and well-being often share common causes. Professor Vineis will review evidence on the emergence of these multiple health threats, as well as discussing , together with Professor Marmot, their most likely causes. The presentation will summarize the content of the new book of Prof. Vineis.
