Early Health Disparities and Later-Life Outcomes

Insights from Cohort Studies

This two day workshop is organised by Bertie Lumey, NIAS-NIDI fellow and takes places at the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study. Attendance is at invitation only. Want to know more? Join us on 25 January at the public talk in SPUI25 'The Holomodor and Health Heritage'.

About the workshop

In the workshop, we aim to increase our understanding of mechanisms producing health inequalities. There is a strong relation between socio-economic position (SEP), health behaviours, and health outcomes but causal pathways are hard to disentangle. Social causation theories suggest that SEP drives changes in health behaviours that later have health consequences.

We will examine what the impact is over time of selected life course transitions that affect SEP and health behaviours, including marriage, family composition, employment, and retirement.

Public talk: The Holomodor & Health Heritage

On Wednesday 25 January, we continue the conversation with a public talk at SPUI25. During this talk, we explore the long term health effects of was and humanitarian crises, with a special focus on the Holomodor.

Speakers are Bertie Lumey, Nataliia Levchuck, and Oleh Wolowyna. This programme is moderated by Anne-Lise Bobeldijk.

The Holomodor and Health Heritage

Collaboration NIAS, NIDI and UMCG

This workshop is made possible thanks to the joint grant by NIAS, the Netherlands Interdisciplinary Demographic Institute (NIDI) and the University Medical Center Groningen (UMCG) to unravel causation and selection in health behaviours. They were awarded a 500.000 euro grant to increase our understanding of the mechanisms producing health inequalities. The grant is provided by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences to strengthen research ties between its institutes.

The grant is awarded to this project because of its scientific innovativeness, and its strong societal implications. Whether selection or causation is the main factor behind health differences has major implications for designing effective health policies.
